It’s a “C-D” Day!

Happy Birthday to Matthias Drake and Christopher Stevenson.

Welcome to the following guest staff today: Martin Zver for Lianne Garland, Dean Lackie for Charlie Trainor, Mike Hambly for Jonathan Hayes, Katherine Robertson for Zak Likely, Meaghan Lister for Alana Trainor, Kenneth Nicolle for Doug Weeks, Trevor MacDonald for Margaret MacDonald, and Brian Somers for Roger Kelly (pm).

Healthy Doubts…… If you listen to ads about bottled water, you might think it’s the purest and healthiest drink on the planet! Between April 2008 and April 2009 only 6% of bottled water producers in Canada were inspected by health authorities. And what about tap water? Municipalities often test public water 24 hours a day and conduct thousands of sample tests for bacteria every day. Bottled water is less regulated and tested than your tap water. (Info provided by your Environment Club.)
