In the Dark during Earth Hour

Molson Toronto Brewery 

Well, Earth Hour is over, and what a success it was!  I spent my Earth Hour at Molson, watching the brewery and offices go dark.  Above is a picture of the brewery, just after 8:00 p.m.  It was still a little bit light outside, so I took another couple shots closer to 9:00 p.m. (below), when it was really dark!

The offices were just as dark as the brewery, so I decided to wander around with my little video camera and take some clips.

Thanks to everyone for making Earth Hour such a success at Molson.  It was wonderful having so much enthusiasm for climate change awareness — let’s keep it going! 


Molson’s Earth Hour task force in action.  The team went around on Friday afternoon to make sure each office, room, desk, etc. was Earth Hour Certified.

Molson asks: What are you doing for Earth Hour? Off to City Hall and Queen’s Park to find out

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.
