Description: From the recent floods in British Columbia to the rampant tornado warnings throughout Ontario, it is becoming more apparent how climate change is impacting our environment in devastating ways. Vertical and horizontal infrastructure needs to be climate-proof, which means more stringent design standards throughout the country.
