Heritage Preservation and the Energy Crisis


The term "heritage" as a popular word, and as a confusing word. An explication of what "heritage" means to the Heritage Canada Foundation, and what Heritage Day is all about. The idea of preserving our heritage, and its increased popularity. Examples of history and heritage that was not preserved. The meaning of an historical building. The energy crisis as an ally: old buildings can be assessed in terms of energy costs to tear them down and replace them. Money saved by preserving older buildings. Restorations, projects and programs of the Heritage Canada Foundation, including education and demonstration projects. The importance of having an architectural mix in our cities. The Heritage Canada Foundation: a preservation business, a continuity business, a national unity business.
