Earth Hour 2009

Laurissa Anyas-Weiss, content producer

March 28, 2009 — Saturday March 28 at 8:30pm - Join millions of people across Canada and the globe as they participate in Earth Hour 2009

Earth Hour at The Weather Network

Join us at The Weather Network as we cover Earth Hour coast to coast. Reporter Kelly Noseworthy will host our live coverage of Earth Hour 2009 including interviews with organizations and businesses taking part as well as talking to Canadians about how they are marking this special event.

The Weather Network will be participating in Earth Hour at our Oakville offices by turning off all non-essential lights and equipment. Our license requires that we continue to broadcast during Earth Hour but we encourage everyone to participate in Earth Hour 2009 and show support for environmental issues that impact us all.

What can you do?

It is easy! From 8:30 - 9:30 local time turn off all lights and non-essential electrical appliances to support an increased awareness of environmental issues. See below for unique ways to mark Earth Hour 2009 with friends and family.

10 Ways to Mark Earth Hour

  • Go outside and look at the stars.
  • Find a great viewing spot to see your town or city go dark at 8:30 p.m.

  • Patronize local restaurants and businesses taking part in Earth Hour.
  • Gather your family or friends for a candle-lit dinner.
