Message from the President, Denise Dilbey
BREB
Happy New Year!!!! Well, 2013 rolled out in my part of the world with a very impressive ice storm followed by a five day power outage. 2014 started with record low temperatures and snow storms which have challenged many of us. Okay, now be honest, have you ever heard of the terms "frost quakes" and "Polar vortex" prior to 2014? Putting weather aside, 2014 typically marks a time for us to reflect on past performances, and begin to envision future forecasts.

The Globe and Mail
