Windsor-Essex county has the perfect blend of city life, farmland and affordable, residential homes. However, in a increasingly populous world, where the need for sustainable practices trumps almost every area of development, how much will it cost us to maintain our North American style of living, and what do we do next?
Every catastrophic storm, flood and fire in 2017 has been significantly worse than ever before, and left thousands of people devastated as a result.
