One thought on “Earth Hour at York U!

  1. I hope, in honour of Earth Hour, and anything to do with sustainability on campus, that someone will do something about the overhead lights being on in the walkways from York Lanes to the Accolade Building during daylight hours. With all that natural light coming in, why do we need the lights on?
