Three McGill architects in Shanghai – the legendary Moshe Safdie (who designed Habitat 67 in Montreal and Marina Bay Sands in Singapore), as well as Cynthia Nei and Queenie Chau.
Tung Thai With 2 years in engineering as prerequisite before starting the architecture program at McGill … When I have a drawing designed by a McGill graduate in architecture, I am sure and certain the mechanical and the electrical rooms complete with the shafts for our electrical and mechanical conduits do have plenty of space to pass through.
Tung Thai Prove it with empty words!? Show me the proof in photos please. Are you an engineer or an architech with hands-on experience? Are you an OIQ or PEI registered engineer? What are your ID nos for both of those provinces?
Yannick Boucher I’m not gonna get into the second part of that statement, because that’s highly debatable (and I live here, it seems you don’t). Secondly, we can talk until we’re blue in the face about since when is there corruption in China, your initial premise of “leaving Canada for China because there’s too much corruption in Canada” makes no sense, sorry. And you can google the research and “elusive proof” yourself very easily.
Now i’m gonna leave it at that, as I have really no need for a bitter and aggressive “debate” with a stranger here. And I don’t wanna spam Alvin’s wall.
Cynthia Nei Um, I moved to Shanghai from Montreal because my company paid for my relocation expenses. It had nothing to do with corruption, but rather because I’m more fluent in Mandarin than French. There’s not enough work available in Montreal for anglophones & allophones. Plus, the salary in QC is 25% less than the salary in the US/China. Also, I searched for a job in Mtl for at least 6 months w/help from Service Canada, but they recommended I move to places like Yellowknife…

Tung Thai In Montreal to obtain a super hospital project, SNC Lavalin president and CEO had to pay $56 million to McGill project manager and a friend of Philippe Couillard, (Philippe is now our present prime minister of Quebec). One of them is in jail now; the other was dead before being repatriated and to be judged in Montreal while he was jailed in Panama prison. We did lots of government and private projects worldwide during my twelve years working at SNC Lavalin; I have never sealed, dated nor signed any documents or drawings. How did I survive those twelve years? Well I hid my OIQ nos and worked as a draftsman. Until my boss found out about this…his face was blue! But still he asked me to date, and sign as witness for the passport of his teammate when most of our engineers in our process and automation department were all gone to Quebec City to complete the GSK projects in Laval and Québec city, while I was at PET airport trying to complete the automation projects related to its conveyors and the airport security systems. One of my regret was even if I was on site working together with super team of specialists worldwide; we could not finish the DSM projects, since our client had no more money to pay us. Now most of my teammates at SNC LAVALIN PHARMA are not living and working in neither Montreal nor Quebec, some of them are moving to Europe and USA.
