For those of you who dropped by the Research Unit in the past week, you’ve probably noticed the electrical problems (i.e. the breaker has been tripping daily)… this is one of the many disadvantages of being in McGill’s oldest non-renovated building! We’ve addressed this issue with the building director, and we are currently trying to get supplementary electrical supply. In the meantime, we’ve rearranged the appliances and put up signs with instructions. Please read them carefully before using any appliance, and make sure to use the coffee maker or microwave oven one-at-a-time. We are really sorry about this, but it is out of our control. We are doing our best to get this resolved asap. Thank you for your cooperation.
Now on a positive note, enjoy reading this fifth issue of the weekly NGSA newsletter! I’ll get back to you next week with the last issue for this semester.
Have a wonderful weekend!
