AJ Update: Greening our Buildings and Festivals
In an unfortunate twist of timing, our latest issue – Rocking the Environment – was put in the mail just before the Canada Post lockout. We have been assured that the issue IS on its way to you. Thanks to you all for your patience and understanding. We hope you find the issue worth the wait!
In the meantime, you can still find the issue on newsstands in independent book retailers and at Chapters/Indigo stores across Canada. Click here to find out what’s in the issue. To hear the music, subscribe today and get it as your first issue, or find it on your local newsstand.
