Bridging Gaps: An Earth Hour Walk with Elizabeth May united Vancouver Islanders in Courtenay on Saturday evening, March 28 in recognition of Earth Hour’s focus on global climate change. An enthusiastic crowd of 75 braved the rainy weather to join Ms. May, federal leader of the Green Party of Canada, and local candidate, Glenn Sollitt, near the Courtenay-Alberni electoral district’s brand new Green Party office at 350 17th Street to begin the walk.

May’s presence in Courtenay followed the sold-out fundraiser, “Rock the Boat with Eilzabeth May” in Campbell River on Saturday afternoon. One of only two Canadian parliamentarians to have attended the international climate talks in Lima, Peru last December, May is a long time supporter of the Earth Hour initiative involving hundreds of millions of people all over the world turning off their lights.
