Earth Hour

Pointe-Claire again part of worldwide movement

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to announce that the City will participate once again this year in Earth Hour, a global movement to raise awareness of the need to fight climate change in communities throughout the world.

“On March 19, citizens are encouraged to take part by turning off all non-essential lights in their homes, as well as all electric and electronic appliances, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m.,” says Mayor Trudeau.

Earth Hour is designed to show us that simple everyday actions have an impact on our environment and global warming. The phenomenon, involving over 170 countries, will be visible this Saturday evening throughout six continents and 24 time zones.

“In Pointe-Claire, the City’s electronic billboards, TV screens in municipal buildings and lights in some municipal buildings will be turned off,” adds the mayor, who will be personally participating in the event.

“Citizens are invited to take part in this initiative to increase environmental awareness,” concludes Mayor Trudeau. “This is an action that will benefit people today and generations yet to come.”
