Media Advisory - Repeat - Marine industry and the environment - Canadian marine industry charts a course for the future



    QUEBEC CITY, Oct. 17 /CNW Telbec/ - The St. Lawrence and Great Lakes

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 cochairs Gerry Carter (Canada Steamship Lines), Terry Johnson (Saint
Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation), and Laurence G. Pathy (FEDNAV).
