Late start update
I'm writing in a flash this morning as I'm late getting out.
Yesterday was a great day with DeWan charging ahead hours ahead of schedule. We met with the Reeve, Bill Finlay, in Grafton, and talked about the challenges and possibilities of a post-carbon future in rural ridings. Many yummy local apples later, we also met with Mayor Coombs in Colborne. He lamented that his town had not done more for reducing emissions, but pointed out that the town's arena, Keeler Arena, was cooled with geothermal, with waste heat going to heat the seats. He also gave us pins from Cramahe township. Great thanks to Helmut and Janet for the wonderful accommodations in their log home, and to Edna and Bill for the fabulous soup for dinner.
