Hot Weather in Store for Southwestern BC

Posted July 13, 2018

While hot and sunny conditions are welcomed news for most, Environment and Climate Change Canada and Medical Health Officers are reminding residents to take precautions to protect themselves from the heat. Keep cool by:

  • Spending time in an air-conditioned facility (such as a shopping centre, library, community centre or restaurant) for at least several hours every day.
  • Dress for the weather by wearing loose, light-weight clothing. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses.
  • Avoid sunburn, stay in the shade or use sunscreen with SPF 30 or more
  • NEVER leave children or pets alone in a parked car.
  • Check in on others - People living alone are at high risk of severe heat related illness.

McGill Library
March 8-May 2, 2016

This exhibition, selected from the over 5,000 works in the City of Burnaby Permanent Art Collection, focuses on artwork made by British Columbia artists who have referenced rainbows in their work, each approaching this meteorological occurrence in a unique way. 

Some of these prints address the phenomenon of rainbows appearing as spectrums in the sky following a rain shower; others depict the refraction of light through water. Still others portray the multi-coloured arc we see in a rainbow as non-objective imagery.
