Réseau express métropolitain
The Réseau express métropolitain is a rapid transit system under construction in the Greater Montreal area around Montreal, Canada. The system will link several suburbs with Downtown Montreal via Central Station, it involves the conversion of the existing Deux-Montagnes commuter rail line to rapid transit standards. A station at Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport will serve as the terminus of one of the four branches; the 67 km light rail system is projected to cost CA$6.3 billion. It will be independent of—but connected to—the existing Montreal Metro, operated by the STM. Trains on the network are expected to be automated and driverless, it would become the fourth longest automated transportation system in the world, after the Singapore Mass Rapid Transit, Vancouver Skytrain, Dubai Metro. On 13 January 2015, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard and Michael Sabia, CEO of Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec, agreed to a partnership in which the Crown corporation would assume financing for major transportation projects in the province, with $7.4 billion planned to be spent on infrastructure from 2014 to 2024.
On 22 April 2016, Sabia and Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre unveiled the project known as the Réseau électrique métropolitain, to the media. A completion date for a first portion of the system was put forward for December 2020. On 22 June 2016, CDPQ Infra published two requests for qualification: one for the engineering and construction contract and the other for the rolling stock, systems and maintenance; the estimated value of the two contracts are $4 billion and $1.5 billion respectively. On 25 November 2016, CDPQ Infra announced the addition of three new stations to the project; the Bassin Peel, McGill and Édouard-Montpetit stations will improve Downtown Montreal service and further integrate the REM into the Metro system through fluid and efficient connections to the Orange and Blue lines. The announcement will adjust the price tag of the entire project to a total $5.9 billion. On 15 June 2017, the Government of Canada pledged $1.28 billion to finance the project, thus securing the financial portion of the REM.
On the same day, Sabia announced that construction on the project was to start at the end of 2017. On 1 December 2017, the CDPQ extended the tender process on the project to the end of January 2018, citing a need for additional discussions with the bidders. On 28 June 2016, CDPQ Infra launched two public tenders in parallel: one for "Engineering and Construction", a second, for "Rolling Stock and Operation and Maintenance Services". Following a prequalification phase, the Caisse's subsidiary announced, on 10 November 2016, the qualified candidates that would be allowed to submit a bid: For the EPC contract, the competitors were the Groupe NouvLR consortium composed of SNC-Lavalin Grands Projets, Aecon, Pomerleau, EPC and AECOM and the Kiewit-Eurovia consortium formed by Kiewit Corporation, Eurovia, WSP Global and Parsons Corporation. Ansaldo STS-Hitachi and China Railway International Co. were not allowed to bid. According to the media, the final bids were submitted to CDPQ Infra on 27 October 2017.
On 10 November 2017, the date of the planned announcement of the selected contractors, the procurement process was "postponed indefinitely," according to the Caisse's subsidiary, to provide more time for the analysis and evaluation of the bids received. On 8 February 2018, CDPQ Infra announced its selection: Groupe NouvLR consortium for the EPC contract and the Groupe des Partenaires pour la Mobilité des Montréalais for the RSSOM contract; the contracts' value is estimated to be around $6.3 billion, out of which 80% account for the EPC contract. Preparatory work began in late March 2018. On 12 April 2018, the project broke ground officially; the primary route is based around the Mount Royal Tunnel, where new underground stations are proposed to be built to connect with the existing McGill and Édouard-Montpetit Metro stations. New connections with commuter rail would be built near the A-40 to the Mascouche line. Southeast from Central Station, the line would follow existing rail lines past Cité du Havre and across to Nuns' Island and use a rail deck constructed on the new Champlain Bridge to cross the St. Lawrence.
Three stations in Brossard on the South Shore would be built: Panama, Du Quartier, Rive-Sud. The northwest branch would be a direct conversion of the existing Deux-Montagnes line, with the doubling of the tracks beyond Bois-Franc station. On the West Island, new branch routes off the northwest branch would begin near the A-13, with the airport branch making a stop in Technoparc St-Laurent before terminating at Montréal–Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport and the other branch would follow an existing rail corridor through Pointe-Claire and Kirkland before it would end in Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue. In the city centre, three stations would be built to inter

Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshio Sawai, published by Shueisha, serialized in the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine. Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo is a comedy influenced by Japanese manzai humor that uses puns, double-talk, breaking of the fourth wall, non-sexualized cross-dressing, visual gags, satirical and pop-culture references; the manga series lasted from 2001 through 2007, divided into two separate sections with a distinct difference in humor and plotting. In the year 300X, the entire world is under the tyrannical rule of the Maruhage Empire and their ruler Tsuru Tsurulina IV, his Hair Hunt troop captures innocent bystanders' hair, leaving the people victims of the Hair Hunt troop's head shaving and their villages in ruins. Standing against this evil regime is the heroic, but bizarre, rebel Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo who fights the Hair Hunt Troop with his powerful Hanage Shinken, his team consists of the normal teen girl Beauty, the smelly teen warrior Heppokomaru and the Hajike leader Don Patch.
Bo-bobo is on an exciting, gag-filled quest in which he uses his hair as a weapon in many locales to fight the forces of the Maruhage Empire as he gains other allies along the way. Shueisha serialized it in Weekly Shōnen Jump; the original manga story ended in 2005, in January, 2006 a sequel manga replaced it in Weekly Shōnen Jump, now entitled Shinsetsu Bobobō-bo Bō-bobo which ended in July, 2007. In North America, the manga is licensed by Viz Media and was published in a one shot graphic novel form in October 2005 and was published monthly in Shōnen Jump from July 2007 to June 2009. A report by Viz at the 2008 New York Anime festival reported that graphic novels would be released sometime in 2008, the first having been released on August 5, 2008. A total of six volumes of Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo were published by Viz before they ceased publication with Volume 15; when asked about why the previous volumes were not being published at Anime Expo 2008, Viz said it was due to the "content". While earlier chapters did run in Shonen Jump to promote the airing of the anime on Toonami, the majority of the first 8 volumes were never released.
After the end of the initial Bo-bobo series, the series rebooted into a second part known as Shinsetsu Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo in December, 2005. Picking up one year after the end of the first part, the Maruhage Empire is reformed by former emperor Tsuru Tsurulina III into the Neo-Maruhage Empire, where the Hair Hunts resume and a new generation of powerful Hair Hunt generals are created. Bo-bobo, powering the abilities of his "Fist of the Nosehair" into its Shinsetsu form, rejoins Beauty and the Hajike allies to take on the renewed Maruhage threat. Many of the rebels from the original series, including Don Patch, Jelly Jiggler, Hatenko and Hanpen return to assist in the new rebellion, yet in the midst of this, Heppokkomaru joins the Neo-Maruhage forces, forced to turn to the dark side for his own personal reasons. The anime was directed by Hiroki Shibata, produced by Toei Animation and ran for 76 episodes from November 8, 2003, to October 29, 2005, on TV Asahi; the anime, licensed by Toei Animation, first aired as a sneak peek on Cartoon Network's Fridays block on September 30, aired on Cartoon Network's Toonami programming block Saturdays at 10/9c.

It has been shown on Jetix since April 14, 2007, at 7:00PM, has been seen on Cartoon Network's broadband service Toonami Jetstream since November 5; the anime is dubbed by Phuuz Entertainment Inc. in association with Cloverway Inc.. The dub was censored at some points in order to receive a lower TV-rating, allowing it to be broadcast to a younger audience demographic. Despite its limitations, the American dubs of the anime and manga manage to preserve the spirit of the show. At several points in the dub, the American version makes fun of the fact that it is a translation of a Japanese product; this style of self-referential humor can be seen in the American version of Kyatto Ninden Teyandee, Samurai Pizza Cats. Additionally, with the exception of the opening credits, all other on-screen Japanese text is intentionally kept in the English dub; the series was licensed for home video release in North America by Illumitoon Entertainment who released only 2 volumes on bilingual DVD in 2007 before their distribution deal with Westlake Entertainment fell through, all further volumes were canceled.
