Ed Robertson says that the band shares the concerns David Suzuki has been raising during the 20 city tour across Canada. “Every Canadian needs to stand up for our right to clean water, fresh air, and healthy food, and this new single is just one way we’re doing our part. We are lagging behind 110 other Countries when it comes to standing up for our environment. Is that where Canada wants to be on a list of what should be fundamental to every Human Being? We live in a beautiful place. Together, let's all demand that we appreciate it, respect it, and protect it.”
David Suzuki welcomed the band’s immense contributions and commitment to the Tour and the David Suzuki Foundation. “We’re so excited that Barenaked Ladies have so fully jumped on board,” said Suzuki. “The energy they brought to their performance at Massey Hall in Toronto earlier in the Tour was electric, I can’t wait to see them in Vancouver.”
