My Anti-Idling Letter is in this week’s NOW Magazine!

I wrote to the environmental columnist at NOW just to tell her my story and cc’d the editor so he would know what was up. The editor emailed me back and asked if he could print the letter. I said that would be great. (When the letter was retyped they left out some sentences and added some typos, but hopefully the point still gets across.) To see the letter, scroll down to the bottom of the June 30-July 6, 2005 issue at:

Footnote: Yesterday I spotted a guy with his car running while he was walking around on the sidewalk chatting on his cell phone. I tore my letter out of my issue of NOW and handed it to him. He turned off his engine. Every bit counts.

I’m in a couple of Molson Canadian radio spots

I’m the guy who says: “Hey there, little guy” to the vicious raccoon. And then the raccoon eats my face. But don’t worry, I wasn’t hurt. It’s “Theatre of the Mind,” as us professional radio actors like to say.

In another spot in the campaign, I’m in the woods at night and I say: “Who’s there?” with a touch of fear. Not enough fear to scare the listener, but enough to add drama and humour to the spot. It’s a delicate balancing act, which is why they needed a truly great actor such as myself.
