Bob McDonald goes from the Pit to the Peak

The Halton Hills Library & Cultural Centre marks its silver anniversary this month with a nineday celebration of the arts event "Celebrating Silver ... Going for Gold". The Halton Hills Library & Cultural Centre has been the centre of cultural activity in Halton Hills for the past 25 years, and is the perfect venue to host the celebrations that will occur between Friday, October 13 and Sunday, October 22. As part of the celebration, one of Canada's best-known science journalists-- Bob McDonald-- brings his presentation The Pit to the Peak: Extreme Canadian Science to Halton Hills. A traveler's tale from the depths of a nickel mine in Sudbury where neutrinos are captured, to the peak of the world's largest mountain, Canadian science is at the forefront of scientific investigation. This highly-respected science journalist and host of CBC's Quirks & Quarks and Science Fare brings his own experiences to the stage of the John Elliott Theatre in a fascinating multi-media presentation. McDonald makes complex science issues easy to understand. He has recently been nominated for two Gemini Awards and the awards will be announced at the show on October 17.
