A Local Environmental Extremist


Tomislav Sloboda, a Toronto doctor, is on his second "carbon strike". He refuses to create emissions and thus refuses to get into a car or plane. When he traveled to Croatia, he boarded a boat instead of flying - a journey that took 8days rather than the usual half day by plane. Tomislav is also conscious and selective about the food he purchases. Is he taking things to the extreme, or is he doing what we should all be doing?

Just a few days ago, CBC joined the growing list of Canadian news broadcasters that have boarded the YouTube train. Most of what they've chosen to feature so far seems to be geared toward entertaining (with subjects like Spiderman, celebrity news, fashion, and cartoons) but I'm hoping they continue to upload more of what they are best at (news, documentaries, politics, etc). Welcome to YouTube, CBC!
