hea­man said the fund pro­vides 25 per cent of costs for projects that pre­date march 2016 and up to 50 per cent for fu­ture projects.

“in our case we are hop­ing to get a cou­ple of Pas­sive­house so­cial hous­ing builds in place that pro­vide a 80 to 90 per cent re­duc­tion in heat­ing and cool­ing,” hea­man said.

hea­man said if ox­ford is suc­cess­ful with the projects, other mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties would fol­low suit.

Young men and women sac­ri­ficed ev­ery­thing they knew, in­clud­ing the com­forts, love and safety of home in or­der to de­fend the rights and free­doms of oth­ers. Veter­ans know the price paid for our free­dom and they want all Cana­di­ans to share in this un­der­stand­ing. “Now more than ever, they are pass­ing the torch of re­mem­brance to us, and all of the peo­ple of Canada to en­sure that the mem­ory of their ef­forts and sac­ri­fices and the val­ues they fought for will live on in all Cana­di­ans. “Even though many of us may not pos­sess the ac­tual mem­o­ries, we owe it to those who have served to learn, to un­der­stand, and to ap­pre­ci­ate the task they have un­der­taken.”
