Save hockey, fight climate change! challenge
A gang of environmentalists gathered on an outdoor Montreal rink on February 16 for a friendly hockey match. The goal: to raise awareness about the threat climate change poses to this winter sport.
Each player wore the number one to mark the fact that Canada is the only country to have withdrawn from the Kyoto Protocol after its ratification.
The players also reminded citizens that they have been invited by Daniel Turp and Team Kyoto to "sign" the Kyoto Protocol. Turp's group is contesting the legality of the withdrawal. Handling the case for them is constitutional expert Julius Grey, who will argue that, by bypassing Parliament, the government broke the law.
