Cost of car maintenance < Cost of a crash

With the myriad of expenses that we face every day, you may be tempted to put off vehicle maintenance to save a few bucks – and you certainly wouldn’t be alone – but is saving a few bucks worth risking your life?

On average, five people die on Canada’s roads each day. Though many of these collisions can be attributed to driving under the influence, driving distracted, or poor driving conditions, it would be ignorant to overlook the importance of the mechanical integrity.

Wetlands – havens for human and wildlife

Wetlands – havens for human and wildlife

World Wetlands Day, celebrated every February 2nd, encourages citizens around the world to turn their thoughts to wetlands and their importance in our lives. Wetlands provide a reliable food supply and help purify freshwater for billions of global citizens. Like giant sponges, they absorb and replenish water to buffer flood and drought risks. Wetlands are also vital nesting, breeding and staging grounds for waterfowl and many other species and continue to be among the most diverse ecosystems of all. And that’s barely skimming the surface of wetlands’ wonders.

Canadian Driving = Severe Driving

Canadian Driving = Severe Driving

Protecting grain grades with two-pass fungicide system

For the second harvest season, producers in Western Canada have had the freedom to market their grains to a buyer of their choice. With this freedom, producing a high-quality and high-yielding crop has become critical. In order to satisfy individual buyers and meet strict market grade tolerances, it is important that growers take a proactive approach and manage disease pathogens within their cropping systems.

A one-stop-shop for survival: How Canada’s iconic species cope with winter

When we compare how animals and humans cope with the harsh Canadian winter, we often find more similarities than differences in the way we dress and behave. Humans have long drawn inspiration from nature’s wisdom, and applied this knowledge to engineering tools, building shelters and developing strategies to survive in some of the most hostile cold weather environments.
