April 2022 All-electric home in the north April 2022 In the runup to Earth Day on April 22, we're reminded of the need for concrete action around climate change, and how its impacts – in wildfires and floods – have hit hard here in B.C. This month, we kick off a new series we're calling CO2&U in which we explore the carbon footprints of individual B.C. households, starting with a couple in North Vancouver.
