Changes to Facebook and how they affect us

We have/had an autoposting system set up on this website to automatically post anything from the news section of this website over to our Facebook group. Now with the newly reported security concerns at FB they have decided to pull that ability along with many others, including our FB members area login, away from groups, pages, and most third party apps until these concerns can be dealt with. Until they figure out what they are doing we will have to post in our Group the old fashioned way. Copy and paste content over manually. Unfortunately that adds the human element back in to the equation so there may be some delay between posts on the site and FB group. We will be testing the functionality of our FB login for the members area this weekend and may need to disable that as well. If we do...

Plastic Bottle Deposit Petition.

Over a billion bottles and cans don’t get recycled in Ontario each year! Sign this petition to help change that.These recyclables either end up in our landfills or littered in our streets, parks and rivers. Recyclables are being washed downstream and polluting our Great Lakes and drinking water. Tiny bits of plastic are being eaten by small fish and other animals which cause chemicals to enter the food chain. Ontario needs to do a much better job of recycling to protect our Environment and Human Health. Ontario has the worst recycling return rate than any other province in Canada. Next time you are drinking from a bottle or can, please read the label. It will say, “Return for Refund where Applicable” Return for Refund programs are found throughout Canada and the United States. It’s time fo...
