Thought I’d share some photos and video from Earth Hour at Molson. Coast to coast to coast, our breweries shut off all non-essential lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. What did you end up doing during Earth Hour on Saturday night?
Molson Earth Hour Task Force – Toronto
Just before 8:30 p.m. at the Montreal Brewery
Lights out at the Montreal Brewery!
Molson Employees in Toronto were asked to fill out an Earth Hour checklist before they left the office on Friday afternoon.
Sebastien filled out his checklist and got a thumbs up from the task force.
I stopped in at WWF last week and interviewed Tara Wood, PR Manager at WWF Canada – she talks about how social media has made a big impact on this year’s campaign.
More pics on our flickr page.
Thanks for making a difference! Cheers, @toniahammer

Earth Hour is only a few days away, and we’re pretty much good to go at Molson. We’ve got our Earth Hour task force ready to power down the office; we’ve planned a cold picnic lunch for tomorrow; and our breweries across Canada will be turning off all non-essential lights – we’re set!
What now? Well, Molson wants to know how you plan to spend YOUR Earth Hour!

March 28th 2009 at 830pm the world wiill engage in Earth Hour. At Molson we are proud to be actively engaged in raising awareness for our employees at all of our locations across the country and reaching out to the family, friends, neighbours, customers, beer drinkers and all Canadians to take action on March 28th.
Last year we had all of our operations take action to reduce energy, which actually resulted in some learning that helped us to change some of our practices to improve energy efficiencies. A simple action like turning off non essential lighting resulted in some powerful examples of how we can make a difference in energy conservation.
Molson salutes the folks at World Wildlife Fund for their continued efforts with Earth Hour and encourage our employees, customers, consumers, families, friends and neigbhours to rise up and get involved in this tremendous initiative on March 28th around the globe.
More to come…Cheers…@MolsonFerg
Cities in Canada already engaged include Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, Vancouver and Edmonton.

For the last couple days, Carole Berry (also a Molsonemployee) and I have been traveling around Toronto, asking our City Councillors, M.P.P.s, M.Ps, and the Deputy Mayor what their planning to do tonight for Earth Hour!
Our first stop was at City Hall in Toronto, where we met with Deputy Mayor of Toronto, Joe Pantalone, and City Councillor John Parker.
Joe Pantalone, Ward 19 Trinity-Spadina
John Parker, Ward 26 Don Valley West
Next Carole and I went to Queen’s Park to visit Dr. Shafiq Qaadri, M.P.P., Etobicoke North.
Our last stop was with the Honourable Roy Cullen, P.C., M.P. Etobicoke North.
Thank you to everyone for taking a moment to talk about Earth Hour with us!

Earth Hour is just about here, and Molson is ready to go! Nation-wide, our breweries and offices are shutting down their lights on Saturday from 8-9 p.m.
Here in Toronto, we’re planning some great things to get everyone involved and aware of how Molson is participating in Earth Hour. On Friday, our cafeteria will be serving a Earth Hour Lunch! Only cold, raw food….and lights off (where safe, of course). No power will be used to cook the lunch.
We have also created an Earth Hour ‘task force’ — a group of Molson volunteers will be going around the offices on Friday afternoon, making sure each office, desk, room, etc. is Earth Hour Certified.
What will you Earth Hour certify on Saturday?
Wait………make that 3 days, 2 hours, 39 minutes…..
