David Suzuki continues his 50-city, carbon-neutral â€œIf You Were Prime Minister Tourâ€ in Hamilton, Canada on Saturday. The tour makes it easy for Canadians to turn their environmental concerns into political action.
Concerned canucks can hear Suzuki speak (heâ€™s in Hamilton tonight but other tour dates are on the roster), send a letter to parliament outlining what they would do if they â€œwere Prime Ministerâ€ and join the ranks of celebrities Michael Buble, Emily Blunt and Rick Mercer in creating their own videos on YouTube.
I love this idea. The most powerful votes we get are at the ballot boxes and the checkout counters. So what would I do if I were Prime Minister? I think Iâ€™d have to immediately resign and appoint David Suzuki.
