This is just TOO GOOD!
The Concerned Citizens of Brant (CCOB) in Paris are looking for support in the form of comments on a provincial posting on the Environmental Registry.
Hosted by Nartia Studios and The Grain by Shayne, the Brantford Community Yart Sale will feature works by local artisans displaying paintings, carvings, and hand-made jewelry, to name a few. You don’t want to miss out on this opportunity to see what type of creative wonders are being produced right in our city, and take some home to enjoy.
The Yart Sale will run from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. at 115 Chestnut Ave. Parking is on-street, and limited, so you might need to walk a little ways if you’re driving to the sale.
Don’t you dare miss it!

At the March Against Monsanto on May 23rd in Brantford, I mentioned that I would post the letter to the Canadian Minister of Health from Dr. Vrain, as well as a video of a talk that he did on his tour across the country to share his concerns with Canadians wherever he could reach them. The video is 40 minutes, and well worth setting time aside to watch. I attended an event in Guelph last year, where Thierry presented on glyphosate along with BC activist Tony Mitra. The presentation changed my whole view on GM agriculture. You can read Dr. Vrain’s letter to the Minister of Health here, below the video. Continue reading
March Against Monsanto was fantastic today! Life interrupts, but soon the letter from Dr. Thierry Vrain to the Canadian Minister of Health will be posted, as well as the 40 minute video where he explains the risks associated with continued use of glyphosate in agriculture. It’s a must see. Pics from the march will go up on facebook soon as well.
