  • NHL alumni Andrew Ference helps lead the NHL’s green initiatives. He and Sarika Cullis-Suzuki, Victoria BC native and co-host of the Nature of the Things, visit the Westhills Recreation Complex in Langford BC to learn how a small-town arena is doing big things in energy efficiency and sustainability.
