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.
