    Wow. Can’t believe I let this slip under my radar.

    woot I was in that audience but I left before David Suzuki got there. Did they end up putting the solar panels and wind generators up? and if so, are they giving a lot of power?

    hey buddy,
    We’ve been told that before, and what’s funny is that we succeeded in doing what people told us we would not be able to!
    Half of our goal is complete – education! The amount of knowledge and experience that we have gained is outstanding. We enjoy the experience and we know that it indeed, will make a difference!

    You said it, and I too will stand and continue to show my support for SWITCH that IS making a HUGE DIFFERENCE upon the environment! We, SWITCH, have already come a long way and MUCH further than as shown in this vid! You can even learn more about us on the Much Channel’s Climate Talk program.

    I remember there was one time when we had to clean up Earl Bales Park in coalition with MAC’s environmental and gardening club. And following on the same day we went downtown and met David Miller who passed out an award to one of the SWITCH executives. SWITCH also scored first place in the WindENG competition at Guelph Universuty in 2007. All these were very exciting time. You can find more info on facebook where there are more updates than on the official website. ^___^
