snipshot_b2sr9jfo0lr.jpgDavid Suzuki continues his 50-city, carbon-neutral “If You Were Prime Minister Tour” 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 (he’s in Hamilton tonight but other tour dates are on the roster), send a letter to parliament outlining what they would do if they “were Prime Minister” 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 I’d have to immediately resign and appoint David Suzuki.
