QUEBEC CITY, Oct. 18 /CNW Telbec/ - The St. Lawrence and Great Lakes
marine industry, collectively known as Green Marine, will officially unveil
its environmental policy and announce the first companies to formally commit
to the policy on the occasion of Quebec Marine Day 2007 at the Port of Quebec
cruise ship terminal on October 23 at 10:30 a.m. For the first time in North
America, the various marine industry stakeholders (shipowners, ports, and
terminals) have joined forces to implement an environmental action plan along
a major maritime corridor, the St. Lawrence-Great Lakes Seaway.
The companies signing on will be introduced at the launch in the presence
of Quebec Minister for Transport Julie Boulet and Green Marine cochairs Gerry
Carter (Canada Steamship Lines), Terry Johnson (Saint Lawrence Seaway
Development Corporation), and Laurence G. Pathy (FEDNAV).
