Look for their Home Tours of sustainable buildings. They also regularly show films at the Midland Public Library, on renewable energy and other related topics.

Ontario Clean Air Alliance        www.cleanairalliance.org

This is the go-to site for the nitty-gritty facts on such hot topics as the billions of dollars still owing on past nuclear projects, which we are still paying for. And loads more.

Want to know how to get off the electricity grid? Marty talked about renewable energy technologies and the feed-in tariff program. His home is off the grid, as is Bear Creek Secondary School in Barrie, where he teaches, and where the students raised funds for solar panels.
