  1. I understand that the City of Nanaimo received $21,214.00 in provincial funding for the 2011 program. The program first began in March 2009, and apparently, the City has changed out 157 stoves.

    I also understand that the funds will be primarily spent on providing $250 rebates for 70 woodstove change-outs, and coordinated with the local retailers between February and May of 2011.

    Apparently, the remaining funds will be used for public education events, which will be coordinated through the Nanaimo Recycling Exchange ($5,800.00) and for two "Burn it Smart" workshops, plus paid advertisement ($3,571.00) which the City will organize.

    As for me, I’m still waiting to receive a share for all my efforts!!
