ABSTRACT:
A breach in the tailings pond at the Mt. Polley copper mine in British Columbia created a deluge of contaminated water to flow into nearby rivers and lakes. The breach also created a deluge of concern about “professional reliance”, the scheme that allowed professionals, including engineers, to make decisions about public welfare without government oversight. In this presentation, Bernard Ennis, P.Eng. will look at the changes affecting the engineering profession that have been introduced in British Columbia and its implications for the profession in Ontario.

8:55 pm to 9:00 pm Closing remarks by Georg Kralik, P.Eng., and distribution of Seminar Attendance Certificates (SAC's) to those who requested them before the pre-registration deadline (see above); Late-Registrations, after Sep 23, 6:00pm, and walk-ins, will not be issued SAC's on site, or retroactively after the seminar.
