FORT WILLIAM FIRST NATION—Mike Holmes Jr. encouraged Fort William citizens to build more sustainably and efficiently and to protect the environment during his April 27 presentation at the Fort William First Nation Community Centre.
“We need to start thinking about protecting our home from the outside in, then we can start doing the finishes that suit our needs,” says Holmes Jr., a professional contractor and TV host on shows such as Holmes and Holmes, Holmes: The Next Generation, and Home to Win. “But we need to protect our home first so it is going to last 100-200 years. I would just like to see everyone as a whole start prioritizing their renovations and protecting their investments because the building industry as a whole, if we start focusing on building better, we will see a much less of an impact on our environment. And I think that is something we really need to be concerned about.”
