  1. I like the work these people are doing towards understandng this great resource and this photo is well done. From watching too many CSI episodes though, I looked a bit deeper.

    In looking through the 2009 annual report it is evident why tax and university rates are high, as donation and grant money coming to them from universities, and branches of municipal and provincial governments is seen. And that must go on across Canada. For example, there are 5 Ministry’s that have donated, there must be a layer of administration just to solicit funding.
