Word of the Week

Disaster - a sudden event, such as an accident or a natural catastrophe, that causes great damage or loss of life.

Quote of the Week

“One has to think about where we’re planning our highways, where we put our wastewater treatment plants (and) pumps … the lower mainland of B.C. needs to be pumped out because it’s at risk of flooding. If we just rebuild what’s there without understanding that we need to essentially revisit how we build things, then we’re just going to have this problem in the future.” - University of Toronto professor Kent Moore on the BC flooding disaster
