Earth Hour

Eleanor McCloskey for JPIC

Earth Hour was Saturday, March 24. Reports this week indicate that Canada’s participation in some cities was lower this year than usual. Maybe some of us forgot this year about the challenge from World Wildlife Fund to do without electric lights for an hour? The call went out and it did happen. At 8:30 p.m., lights were switched off; porch lights, as well as landmarks, went dark in observance of Earth Hour, a global call for international unity on the importance of addressing climate change. Since beginning in Sydney in 2007, Earth Hour has been honoured in some 180 countries. It has never been more urgent than now to recognize and address climate change.
