Well winter is knocking on the door. We have already experienced a couple of light snow falls and frost is now a regular morning visitor. It is time to get those boots, gloves and winter coats at the ready for our chilly days ahead.
My back door is in desperate need of a new door sweep to keep in the heat and keep out the cold. There are many options of door sweeps and insulation material available on the market. My sales person at our local hardware store suggested I bring the old one back with me so that we could insure the new piece of hardware would fit the door requiring the maintenance. A small investment of about $20.00 can contribute greatly to dollar savings and comfort in your home this winter season. Your local hardware store can offer solutions to keep you comfy this winter season.
The Canadian Environmental Law Association and the Environmental Health Institute of Canada invite you to register for “Making the Links: Environmental Law and Health Workshop”. When? November 23, 2010. Where? Ramada Inn & Conference Centre, Cornwall, ON.
This unique event will provide an opportunity for medical professionals, legal professionals, community service providers and community activists to explore the intersection between environmental health and law and to work collaboratively on these issues.
This is a FREE workshop. The Making the Links Project is an interdisciplinary outreach program being undertaken with funding from the Law Foundation of Ontario. It is focused on environmental law and access to justice issues in six Ontario communities, including Cornwall. These communities were chosen, in part, because of the presence of high pollution burdens and incidences of environmental health issues, and high percentages of sensitive populations.
