Andrea has been in Montreal for 7 years. She would rather mark her ballot than eat it. According to Andrea, the Green movement is here to stay. Between Le Devoir and The Gazette, she says: “Neither, both are for the trash [or recycling bin].”
We met Ben, 36, on Mont-Royal St on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Ben has lived in Montreal for 15 years. Between CNN and Al-Jazeera, he prefers Al-Jazeera. Ben would rather mark his ballot than eat it. To save the planet, he’d give up his car.
Viet has been living in Montreal for 8 years now. He thinks that the environment and education are the most important issues in the current provincial elections. To save the planet, Viet would be willing to give up fur. But it looks so cool!
Here’s Floh the Action. Floh, 30, has been in Montreal for 5 years. To save the planet, he’d turn off the lights for one week. Floh thinks indymedia. org is the best source for information. He recommends eating your ballot with hot sauce & pickles. Yum!
