Earth Hour

Folks should not forget that today we celebrate Earth Hour.

Tonight's the night that we switch off the lights between 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm.

Earth Hour is designed to raise awareness of climate change, and was initiated by the World Wildlife Fund in Sydney, Australia in 2007. It is observed by at least 4,000 cities in 88 countries of the world (including the city of Ottawa).

So, remember, turn off the lights for an hour tonight and honour Earth Hour.

With many millions of people in self-isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic, it may be difficult for lots of people to take part in Earth Hour this year, but please, please make the attempt.
