“I am part of the We Canada Initiative for the Earth Summit 2012 because, as a Canadian, I live a wonderful and privileged life. I can buy food when I’m hungry, drink fresh water when I’m thirsty, turn up the thermostat when I’m cold, and turn on lights when it’s dark. This is luxury. I don’t believe this luxury should be dictated by what side of the border we live on. Everyone is deserving of it. And everyone should be grateful for it. That is why I am part of this movement.”
