The Sun is Sinking

The sun is sinking behind the skyscrapers, and filling Nathan Phillips Square with late day orange light and excitement! People with red ‘Global Warming Ain’t Cool’ bags circulate, with the crowd growing by the minute.

Nelly Furtado did a soundcheck earlier, to the delight of her screaming fans. “We love you!” a young person yelled. And through my thick winter hat, I’m pretty sure I heard Nelly say, “Thanks, I love you too.” No wonder she has so many admirers, filling the square to see her special Earth Hour acoustic performance. She has a great personality, and we’re thankful that she is giving her time to this great cause.

Not only will Nelly sing about turning out the lights tonight, but The Philosopher Kings and Fefe Dobson will also lend their talents to the free celebration tonight. No doubt the screaming fans will number in the thousands, as we watch the skyscrapers and the landmarks of Hogtown go dark for Earth Hour.

Stay tuned for the big switch off!
