Well-known Canadian author, broadcaster and environmentalist Silver Donald Cameron , in partnership with Efficiency Nova Scotia presented Take Charge! Saving Money, Creating Jobs and Helping the Planet in Bridgewater on a stormy Jan 12th. A small, but keen crowd received lots of tips and information about how to conserve electricity and save money on their power bills.
