It’s known as the May 2-4 weekend. It’s also the unofficial start to the cottage season. But no matter how you look at it, in Ontario and right across Canada, May 22nd or Victoria Day is hopefully the first long weekend of the year where warm weather and good times come together. Oh, it also marks Queen Victoria’s birthday (officially May 24th). So we’ll wish her happy birthday and you a very festive and safe Victoria Day long weekend. And just a reminder, our office will be closed, because we’ll be off enjoying the holiday Monday as well!

Viral hepatitis is an inflammation of the liver caused by a virus. It is estimated that over 600,000 Canadians are affected by it although many, up to 25%, are unaware of their status. About 1 in 12 people worldwide has viral hepatitis. 1.4 million lives are lost to the disease each year. The disturbing aspect of hepatitis C is that there are no symptoms until the person’s liver has reached a state of serious damage. While there is still no vaccine to prevent hepatitis C there is a cure. The AIDS Committee of North Bay & Area will be holding a range of events over Hepatitis C Awareness Week around the North Bay area. Find the schedule here.
