Report calls for urgency to address contaminated river sediments

Contaminated sediments limit the ecological recovery of the Detroit and Rouge River ecosystems, says a report released Tuesday by the State of the Strait Conference steering committee.

Local team clear winner in crystal competition

Growing a crystal is no simple task. But one high school team from Leamington grew a crystal so fine it won the Best Quality award at Canada’s 2022 National Crystal Growing Competition.

Students from Windsor and Essex County high schools worked with chemistry professor Nick Vukotic and Faculty of Science experiential learning specialist Michelle Bondy in preparation for the national competition.
