TORONTO, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - The Ontario Society of Professional Engineers
(OSPE) is informing members of the media that engineers are available to
comment on many of the topical issues of importance to Ontarians. These topics
include safe drinking water, consistent power supply, building safety,
research and innovation, infrastructure issues concerning waterways, roadways
and railways, environmental issues, clean energy and so on.
"As engineers, we want our voice to be heard and our expertise to be
recognized," said Michael Monette, MBA, EDP, P.Eng., President and Chair of
OSPE, the advocacy body for the province's 70,000 professional engineers. "The
engineering community is an information resource that is often overlooked
during times of uncertainty, curiosity and fear among members of the public.
An engineer with expertise in a relevant discipline will explain the situation
in a clear and concise manner. They will help educate the reporter resulting
in a more informative and balanced story."
OSPE speaks for engineers with expertise in many disciplines from
aerospace to environmental to workplace hazardous materials and safety. In
addition, OSPE has established task forces looking at issues surrounding
Energy, Safe Water and Waste Management, to name a few. Committee members are
extremely knowledgeable about these contentious issues which are of great
importance to the public at large.
