"Lights Out" for Mount Allison

March 19, 2009

Most of the lights at Mount Allison University will be kept off today for Lights Out Canada, a nation-wide event in which high schools turn off their lights in recognition of climate change. The event is observed on Earth Day, celebrated April 22, but organizers at Mount Allison are marking the day earlier to maximize participation on campus, as Earth Day falls during the final exam period. This year, Mount Allison will be the first university ever to participate campus-wide in Lights Out Canada, which was founded in 2005 by Keleigh Annau, now a student at the university.
