National Non-Smoking Week (NNSW) has been observed during the third week in January for more than 37 years. With a wide variety of activities and participants across the country, National Non-Smoking Week is one of the most important events in Canada’s ongoing public education efforts on controlling tobacco-use.
The Wednesday of National Non-Smoking Week is termed Weedless Wednesday. Smokers are urged to refrain from smoking on this day. The intention is to kick-start the process of quitting smoking as well as gaining media coverage.
Weedless Wednesday focuses on the benefits of cessation and promotes the community resources available to help smokers quit. It takes a “one day at a time” approach to quitting smoking, a concept appealing to many smokers who may be discouraged at the thought of an entire week — or lifetime — without cigarettes, but who may be able to cope with one smoke-free day.

Smokers’ Helpline serves five provinces and one territory in Canada, including: PEI, New Brunswick, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Yukon. For quitline services in other provinces, visit www.cancer.ca/quitlines. Funding varies by province/territory, so services may also vary.

There is a scientific consensus that does in fact warn us how climate change is a tangible threat, and is advancing in a way that portends to change everything. If you are unsure of how climate change affects you, maybe it is time to educate yourself. For your interest and education, we present a selection of streaming videos and books that may be found in our collection. Learn before you discern!
Filmed over 211 shoot days in nine countries and five continents over four years, This Changes Everything is an epic attempt to re-imagine the vast challenge of climate change. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller This Changes Everything, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.
Climate change is not ‘a problem’ waiting for ‘a solution’. It is an environmental, cultural and political phenomenon which is re-shaping the way we think about ourselves, our societies and humanity’s place on Earth. Drawing upon twenty-five years of professional work as an international climate change scientist and public commentator, Mike Hulme provides a unique insider’s account of the emergence of this phenomenon and the diverse ways in which it is understood. He uses different standpoints from science, economics, faith, psychology, communication, sociology, politics and development to explain why we disagree about climate change. In this way he shows that climate change, far from being simply an ‘issue’ or a ‘threat’, can act as a catalyst to revise our perception of our place in the world. Why We Disagree About Climate Change is an important contribution to the ongoing debate over climate change and its likely impact on our lives.
Global climate change is one of the most important issues humanity faces today. This updated, second edition assesses the sensible, senseless and biased proposals for averting the potentially disastrous consequences of global warming, allowing the reader to draw their own conclusions on switching to more sustainable energy provision. Burton Richter is a Nobel Prize-winning scientist who has served on many US and international review committees on climate change and energy issues. He provides a concise overview of our knowledge and uncertainties within climate change science, discusses current energy demand and supply patterns, and the energy options available to cut emissions of greenhouse gases. Written in non-technical language, this book presents a balanced view of options for moving from our heavy reliance on fossil fuels into a much more sustainable energy system, and is accessible to a wide range of readers without scientific backgrounds – students, policymakers and the concerned citizen.
This devastating documentary offers a huge reality check on climate change in Antarctica. It outlines the scary recent phenomenon of suicide among penguins, the imminent rise of the world’s sea level due to ice melting, startling new data on the ozone hole and how vegetation is now growing in the world’s largest desert. These new discoveries were considered so valuable that this film became the only one invited by the United Nations to screen to world leaders during the COP15 Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, December 2009.

Happy holidays! The staff at RRC Library wish you a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season. Below are some festive films to cozy up to on a cold winter night. (RRC network log in may be required.)
“This short film, featuring the work of the internationally-renowned Old Trout Puppet Workshop, is a playful cautionary tale about the consequences of selfishness and greed. The film’s greedy boy-king, Santa Claus, has everything he could ever want, including a castle brimming with toys, but the path of the greedy has only one end: to wind up alone, without a single friend. Santa only wants more and more—until he discovers the gift of giving.” (Source: NFB Website)

“It is just before Christmas in the village of Hart’s Landing and an ominous shadow threatens the tiny town. That’s right, Bill Counter, a wealthy, unscrupulous businessman, is building a huge department store right in the middle of town. With a thousand tricks up his sleeve, nothing appears to be able to stop him. “Buy, Buy and Always Buy” seem to be his favorite refrain. But after he makes friends with Walter and Tandoori, they are quick to realize the dishonest nature of dear Bill Counter! A major challenge awaits our hero Walter. With the help of his faithful sidekick Tandoori, he must save the village whose quality of life is being severely tested.” (Source: Curio.ca)
“Ideal for Religious Studies, The Nativity is not simply a retelling of the story of the birth of Jesus. Shot over two years in Morocco, this visually stunning international production explores the search of the Magi, the tyranny of Herod, and the earthly troubles of lowly shepherds. But at its heart, it is about two people — Mary, a young girl frightened by the momentous gift bestowed upon her, and Joseph, the kind man who loves her, but struggles to accept his own role in the greatest story ever told. The Nativity brings the story to life, rooting the action in a world we can all recognize and understand more than two millennia after the star first shone over the stable in Bethlehem.” (Source: Curio.ca)

Every year, Anthony Bourdain’s Kitchen Confidential comes in and out of the library like a popular restaurant dish, causing the library to add a second copy to keep up with the demand. It’s not surprising considering he has a charisma to go with his knowledge, both displayed on CNN’s ‘Parts Unknown.’
Many believe Bourdain’s book ushered in the era of the ‘celebrity chef’, but his story provides a peek into the workings of a busy restaurant kitchen, something students and staff in the Culinary Arts Program experience with enough stories of their own to fill entire shelves. However, this book represents one part of a vast world and the library offers a few suggestions for those wanting to explore the world of chefs and their kitchens, a place of innovation and a reflection of the world in general.
A number of recent books, magazines, and television programs have emerged that promise to take viewers inside the exciting world of professional chefs. While media suggest that the occupation is undergoing a transformation, one thing remains clear: being a chef is a decidedly male-dominated job. Over the past six years, the prestigious James Beard Foundation has presented 84 awards for excellence as a chef, but only 19 were given to women. Likewise, Food and Wine magazine has recognized the talent of 110 chefs on its annual Best New Chef list since 2000, and to date, only 16 women have been included. How is it that women the gender most associated with cooking have lagged behind men in this occupation?–Back Cover
In the winter of 1996, journalist Michael Ruhlman donned a chef‘s jacket and houndstooth-check pants to join the students at the Culinary Institute of America, the country’s oldest and most influential cooking school. But The Making of a Chef is not just about holding a knife or slicing an onion, it’s also about the nature and spirit of being a professional cook and the people who enter the profession. As Ruhlman– now an expert on the fundamentals of cooking– recounts his growing mastery of the skills of his adopted profession, he propels himself and his readers through a score of kitchens and classrooms in search of the elusive, unnamable elements of great food. — Back cover.
It begins with a simple ritual: Every Saturday afternoon, a boy who loves to cook walks to his grandmother’s house and helps her prepare a roast chicken for dinner. The grandmother is Swedish, a retired domestic. The boy is Ethiopian and adopted, and he will grow up to become the world-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson. This book is his love letter to food and family in all its manifestations. Marcus Samuelsson was only three years old when he, his mother, and his sister–all battling tuberculosis–walked seventy-five miles to a hospital in the Ethiopian capital city of Addis Adaba. Tragically, his mother succumbed to the disease shortly after she arrived, but Marcus and his sister recovered, and one year later, they were welcomed into a loving middle-class white family in Gothenburg, Sweden. It was there that Marcus’s new grandmother, Helga, sparked in him a lifelong passion for food and cooking with her pan-fried herring, her freshly baked bread, and her signature roast chicken. From a very early age, there was little question what Marcus was going to be when he grew up–Back Cover
Ferrari Adria is arguably the greatest culinary revolutionary of our time. Hailed as a genius and a prophet by fellow chefs, worshipped (if often misunderstood) by critics and lay diners alike, Adria is imitated and paid homage to in professional kitchens, and in more than a few private ones, all over the world.
In his lively close-up portrait of Adria, award-winning food writer Colman Andrews traces this groundbreaking chef’s rise from resort-hotel dishwasher to culinary deity, and the evolution of El Bulli from a German-owned beach bar into one of the world’s best restaurants. With a new afterword revealing the future of El Bulli, Perron brings to life the most exciting food movement of our time and illuminates the ways in which Adria has forever altered our understanding and appreciation of food and cooking.–Back Cover
To support his endeavors, Timmermeister prepared weekly dinners from the farm’s bounty.

Hip. Cool. Fashion-forward. These aren’t adjectives you’d ordinarily think of applying to baked goods. Think again. Not every baker wants to re-create Grandma’s angel food cake of cherry pie. Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito certainly didn’t, when they left their advertising careers behind, pooled their life savings, and opened their dream bakery, Baked, in Brooklyn, New York, a few years back. The visions that danced in their heads were of other, brand-new kinds of confections… things like a Malt Ball Cake with Mild Chocolate Frosting, which captures the flavour of their favourite Whoppers candies (and ups the ante with a malted milk ball garnish). Whether trendsetting or tried-and-true, every idea in this book is freshly baked.
Each issue includes several tutorials, reviews of cake shows and contests across the country, fresh ideas, new products and business information for the professional.The purpose of the magazine has always been to bring new ideas, techniques and skills to its readers through the use of step-by-step tutorials, themed showcases, new product information and more. As an industry that thrives on sharing, ACD inspires creativity by giving all its readers access to top-level talents from around the world.
A collection of recipes that showcase the sweet, rich, and sunny-colored delight made by nature’s hardest worker—the bee.

Veterans know the price paid for our freedom and they want all Canadians to share in this understanding. They are passing the torch of remembrance to us, the people of Canada, to ensure that the memory of their efforts and sacrifices will not die with them, and that an appreciation of the values they fought for will live on in all Canadians.
Are you planning a social media tribute?
Every year in November, we stop to remember, salute and honour Canada’s Veterans and active duty personnel. This year, we hope that Canadians from coast to coast will join in to pay tribute to our heroes for their service and sacrifice. Let’s start a social media movement that tells our Veterans we #RememberThem.
You can even dress up your online profile with social media ready pics and graphics:

The origins of the First World War, both diplomatic and social, are discussed thoroughly examined. The reader is then taken through the major battles on the Eastern and Western fronts, and is given insight into the eventual Allied victory. The war at sea, on the home front, and in distant theaters is carefully examined. The war as it was experienced by the men in the trenches is also explored.
Meet the men of the 46th Canadian Infantry (South Saskatchewan) — the raw recruits who would earn a reputation as the finest fighting soldiers of the First World War. Over 91 percent would be killed or wounded, They would never retreat, and they would never fail their country.
The First World War followed a period of sustained peace in Europe during which people talked with confidence of prosperity, progress, and hope. But in 1914, Europe walked into a catastrophic conflict that killed millions, bled its economies dry, shook empires and societies to pieces, and fatally undermined Europe’s dominance of the world. It was a war that could have been avoided up to the last moment—so why did it happen?
A tribute to the combatants in the First World War, this film traces the conflict through the war diary and private letters of five Canadian soldiers and a nurse. Hearing them, the listener detects between the lines an unspoken horror censored by war and propriety. The film mingles war footage, historical photos and readings of excerpts from the diary and letters. The directorial talent of Claude Guilmain breathes life into these 90-year-old documents and accompanying archival images so that we experience the human face and heart of the conflict.
More than 30 years after first mounting their celebrated stage production of Billy Bishop Goes to War, Eric Peterson says he and musical accompanist John Gray have lost none of their ardour for the war hero’s tale. Nearing the end of his life, an aged Bishop (Peterson) recounts the triumphs and horrors of The Great War, “the war to end all wars”. Through raucous stories, haunting memories, and vibrant song, Bishop traces his journey to becoming the top flying ace of the British Empire. A story of the human cost of war on a scale the world had never seen before, this is an intimate and powerful portrait of a man who continues to capture the imagination.
For Canada the stakes are unprecedented. More than a billion dollars in aid has been promised to Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban regime. And with close to 100 Canadian soldiers killed, the military mission in the war-torn country has exacted a considerable human toll. As the mammoth task of rebuilding Afghanistan continues, it’s time to address a contentious question: is all of this effort making a difference to the lives of Afghans? Afghanistan: Between Hope and Fear takes viewers into the heart of a country that has been the subject of such intense debate and asks whether or not the lives of ordinary citizens are improving. In order to gain unique access to Afghans living in remote and particularly dangerous areas, the CBC engaged local journalists and camera crews. Through a series of intensely personal stories delving into a range of topics, the program examines the big issues: is the country descending into further instability? Or is real progress being made?
This fascinating book describes Canada’s coming of age during World War I on the battlefields and at home. When Britain declared war on Germany, it meant that Canada was at war, too. Most Canadians supported the war, but the government faced opposition about conscription from French-speaking Canadians who did not feel a particular loyalty to Britain. In the air, the incredible feats of Canadian flying ace Billy Bishop made him a hero back home. On the battlefield, Britain came to rely on Canadian soldiers, who had a formidable reputation for taking and holding military objectives when other troops had failed. Find out how the victories of Canadian “shock troops” in battles at Ypres (where they faced mustard gas poisoning), the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Hill 70, and Passchendaele helped give Canada a presence on the world stage.
Padres in No Man’s Land is the compelling story of brave and deeply committed army chaplains who brought faith and courage to Canada’s troops during one of history’s most devastating wars. Tracing the growth of the Canadian Chaplain Service from its chaotic and controversy-ridden early days to its maturation as an efficient field force, Duff Crerar highlights both the role of the Service on the battlefield and the personal experiences of the chaplains. Refuting the widely held view that chaplains serving overseas were cloistered from front-line realities, Crerar describes the padres’experiences in camps, hospitals, and on the battlefield. He examines how they maintained their faith in the face of death and destruction, and explores the bonds forged between chaplains and troops. Padres in No Man’s Land concludes in the postwar era with the decline of the chaplains’hopes for spiritual renewal upon their return to Canada – their dreams dashed not by the war, but by the subsequent peace.
Thirteen-year-old Johnny Anders is something of a misfit, with no friends and a poor school record, but all this begins to change when he is awakened one night to find a soldier-ghost in his bedroom. Johnny is taken back to meet a series of unusual heroes in Canada’s war history. These include Joan Bamford Fletcher, who commandeered Japanese soldiers to take hundreds of wounded civilians to safety through the jungles of Indonesia, and the much-decorated Raymond Collishaw, through whom Johnny learns that Canada played a role in the Russian Revolution. Even as he is making his discoveries, Johnny becomes close friends with Casey Collishaw, the great-granddaughter of Raymond Collishaw. Together the pair set about uncovering why it is that Johnny has been chosen to be a witness to Canadians at war.
