An ethical question: Is a television set tuned to the Canadiens-Maple Leafs game an essential appliance?
This will be the conundrum facing Montrealers who want to be green and participate in Earth Hour tomorrow night, but don’t want to miss a minute of a game with their beloved Canadiens.
Organizers of the second annual Earth Hour are asking governments, businesses and individuals to turn off the lights and any non-essential electrical appliances for an hour, between 8 and 9 p.m.
Personally, I don’t care for hockey (don’t watch television in any case) and care as much about Earth Hour as I do about, well, hockey. So I’m cool. Phew.by
