Guelph-Humber, prof featured on news programs

The University of Guelph-Humber and its unique plant wall biofilter were featured on CTVís Canada AM today.

The first of a two-part story on the plant wall biofilter aired during Mark Cullen's gardening segment Wednesday. (To watch the clip, click on the 'Gardening' box located at the bottom of the website.) The second part of Cullen's report will air Jan. 12 at 7:45 a.m.

The plant wall biofilter is four storeys high and contains some 1,000 plants. Beyond esthetics, the biofilter helps clean and freshen the air, and contributes to the ventilation of the building: warming the air in the winter and cooling the facility in the summer.

The plant wall was also featured in the Globe and Mail in October.

Political science professor Craig Johnson appeared on TVOntario's Studio 2 Tuesday night discussing the tsunami in Asia.

The program will be repeated today at 2:30 p.m.

An article Johnson wrote about what could have been done to avert the tsunami tragedy appeared Monday's Globe and Mail.
