Milllions of people around the world will be turning off their lights for Earth Hour on Saturday night.
Starting at 8:30 p.m., they will flip off their lights for 60 minutes to conserve power and show support for the fight against climate change.
Earth Hour originated in Sydney, Australia in 2007 and since that time it has grown in popularity. In 2009, hundreds of millions of people in some 4,000 cities in close to 90 countries turned off their lights.
"Earth Hour is a great example of a single idea can grow and inspire people everywhere to take uncomplicated action that can make a difference," Premier Gordon Campbell said in a press release.
