River Rising/ Stairwells with a Difference/ Phone In: decorating ideas

River Rising: Many of you are still picking up the pieces, or trying to dry out following a windy and wet start to the week. Karl Wilmot is the Riverwatch Coordinator at New Brunswick's Emergency Measures Organization. He explained why the Riverwatch line wasn't working yesterday.

Stairwells With a Difference: What comes to mind when you think about stairwells in office buildings or apartments: ugly, possibly dirty, and often hard to find?

Nadine Purdy is a fourth year student at NSCCAD, and Fran Dunn is physical activity specialist at the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
