    Heather Dubbeldam is the recipient of the 2016 Professional Prix de Rome in Architecture by the Canada Council, one of the oldest and most prestigious prizes in architecture, created to recognize outstanding achievement in Canadian architecture. Her practice has been using the prize to support their research project entitled ‘The Next Green – Innovation in Sustainable Housing’, which entails travel to Scandinavia and Germany to study sustainable housing precedents and research for northern climates. Dubbeldam’s broad areas of study include a focus on innovative sustainable design as an architectural driver, exploring how architects in Nordic countries set new standards for sustainable buildings while developing a unique spatial and artistic architectural language in which energy efficiency and design merge seamlessly. Heather will be presenting her firm’s Prix de Rome research to date as well as a selection of her firm’s past and current project that are influenced by this ongoing research.

  • Legalization of Marijuana: evidence-based decision or reefer madness? - Sept 26th

    Date:
    Tuesday, September 26, 2017 7:30 p.m.

    Location:
    Taphouse Northern Grill + Pub
    1500 Regent St, Sudbury, ON
    FREE! (No registration required)

    As the Government of Canada aims to legalize marijuana by July 1st 2018, many questions still loom about benefits, risks, enforcement, and scientific evidence. Since 1997, public opinion polls have found that an increasing majority of Canadians agree that, “Smoking marijuana should not be a criminal offence.” Is this shift in public opinion supported by scientific evidence? Medical marijuana is currently used to treat a long list of health problems, but when we look at the scientific evidence, the list gets very short. There is also evidence that marijuana can have negative effects on brain development, especially in teenagers. Marijuana researchers in Canada are held back by current regulations and more research is needed. With one of the world’s highest consumption rates and immanent legalization in Canada, are our scientists poised to become world leaders in marijuana research?

    Panelists:
    James Watterson,
    Associate Professor, Department of Forensic Science

    Sarah Cadorette
    Clinical Supervisor, Bodystream Medical Marijuana

    Respect Is Burning Supperclub

    Sudbury, ON P3E 3M6

    Approval has been received for the development of new Casinos in Northern Ontario and, as a result, we are facing the prospect of a large full casino being built in the City of Greater Sudbury by the Ontario Government.

    The development of a full casino in the City of Greater Sudbury has been a topic raised from time to time over the years and has resulted in very emotional discussion from both supporters and non-supporters. This was last discussed in 2012 and since that time, a great deal of information and facts have become available.

    Please join Downtown Sudbury for an important information session with Special Guest Tom Fortin, CasinoFreeSudbury. Tom will present findings, including statistics gathered from existing casinos throughout the province.
