The properly voted choice for the 2015-2016 book was Paris 1919 by Margaret Macmillan.

Medical Marijuana ?

Tantalus Labs is developing the first purpose-built facility of its kind in North America. Our system represents the new generation of Cannabis-tailored closed Greenhouses, and it is wholly owned and operated in British Columbia.
Medical Marijuana company Tantalus Labs is constructing that facility on the former Watson property at 272th Street and Bell Avenue. It could potentially become one of the largest producers of legal cannabis in Canada. That, Tantalus Labs feels, is going to be a piece of technology that Whonnock can be proud of.
Opinions differ and the feeling is that this kind of development does not belong in our community and that there is nothing in this project that does Whonnock or its residence any good. There are only negatives. 
To discuss the matter Dan Sutton, Managing Director of Tantalus Labs, has invited the residents of Whonnock to an informative meeting at Whonnock Lake Centre on Monday, March 23rd from 6pm to 8pm. Mayor Nicole Read will also be present.
