Event description

Description

Join us as CBC Meteorologist and science host, Johanna Wagstaffe, discusses her book Fault Lines, focusing on the science behind earthquakes and the risks associated with living on BC's South Coast. Johanna will further discuss how preparation helps a community recover following an earthquake, and how a 'resilient city' supports sustainability.
