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.

“Community of Sea Life”

Sea Life 

Community members were invited to participate in the development and creation of a wall art mural for the front foyer of Eileen Dailly Centre. They were given the opportunity to work with professional artists and educators while gaining valuable connections to the Centre and to one another through the exploration of art techniques. The Community Arts team held family workshops and worked with members from Progressive Housing, MAC, Burnaby Mental Health and the Centre Preschool. Working with the theme of sea life and their wondrous qualities, over 200 community members created and captured the uniqueness that make up the design and painting quality of the mural.
