For one short hour on March 23, the lights went out in Sooke —  voluntarily. In recognition of Earth hour — a worldwide movement to raise awareness on climate change — Sooke residents bettered the provincial average.

“Thank you to everyone in who participated in the March 23rd, 2013 EARTH HOUR!” says Mayor Milne, “Sooke reduced it’s power consumption by 3.3 per cent — well over the provincial average of 1.95 per cent.”
