Glad to see ELA is still in the News

I’ve known that this research has been on going at ELA for a number of years.

But I am glad to see that the world class research institute in Northwestern Ontario’s back yard is shedding light on it’s scientific success stories after the controversial news of lately regarding their funding.

Maybe IISD will do a good job of releasing the unique ground breaking research that can only happen at this facility.

A Night with David Suzuki?

What do you think DHS?

Should we send some students to spend a night with David Suzuki?

Tickets are slightly cheaper for Thunder Bay on Monday 20 Oct 2014 than Winnipeg on Friday 24 Oct 2014.   But I am guessing the bus/hotel would be cheaper for Winnipeg?
