The issues we have regarding our air, water and soil have not disappeared. As a Baby-Boomer, are you concerned about the conditions of the environment? Some articles have indicated Baby-Boomers are less concerned than the younger generation. As a business, are you concerned about the influence of climate change on productivity or your staff? Flooding in Quebec has become a real yearly occurrence which affects the workforce.
