Help Hurricane Fiona Victims


Post-tropical storm Fiona made landfall in Atlantic Canada early Saturday morning, bringing heavy rain, strong winds and storm surge that washed some buildings into the ocean.

 

The Hurricane, which could prove to be one of Canada's costliest natural disasters, slammed Eastern Canada forcing evacuations as wind gusts reached up to 170 km per hour (106 miles per hour) and the storm surge swallowed up homes on the coastline.

 

“Unprecedented” damage to Atlantic Canada will take months to rebuild

 

It will take several months for Canada to restore critical infrastructure after the powerful storm Fiona. Crews worked throughout Sunday night to restore power and clean up fallen trees and debris across five provinces of the Atlantic region, but more than 240,000 residents are still without electricity.


Just in Port aux Basques, Newfoundland and Labrador, more than 20 homes were destroyed and more than 200 people need shelter. The cost of damages is in the millions (of dollars).

Our Frame Covers

WE DO NOT USE GLASS!

All our frames come with a special lightweight and super thin acrylic (or Plexiglass) facing, superior to standard glass, and is enhanced with a UV coating to help prevent discolouration of inserted artwork, diplomas or certificates from sunlight. There are many advantages to using this product over glass; it is much lighter in weight than glass, which reduces cost in shipping and makes the frame easier to hang. It has a much higher impact/shatter resistance. A better transparency than glass (glass reflects more light than Plexiglass so it causing a great deal of reflection and glare) and it is much safer than glass due to its much lower breakage factor; no sharp broken shards that can cut you or damage your mat board and documents. These advantages have dramatically reduced returns due to damages during delivery.
