Canadians are being asked to turn off their lights for an hour tonight as part of a global and symbolic stand against climate change.
   
Organizers say Earth Hour shows how a small act - turning off lights and electronics for an hour - can have a powerful impact when enough people carry it out.

The organization has said cities have played a key role in promoting the event.
   
This year, it's also relying on homegrown celebrities to get the word out.
   
Canadian celebrities including Star Trek's William Shatner, actor and director Jason Priestly and astronaut Chris Hadfield have appeared in short videos meant to get people thinking about conservation.

    Typical of that piece of s**t Miller to now head WWF. He ruined the city with his crap, wasted hundreds of millions, etc. When you turn out the lights and replace them with candles you introduce more carbon into the air, but of course why would people like Miller bother with true science vs junk science that fits their agenda.

    1. Miller's politics have nothing to do with this.
    2. I don't subscribe to Miller's politics
    3. This whole "Earth Hour" and "Earth Day" are a farce nonetheless.
