Christopher Pollon

Cameron Hill, Canada

“[If access to energy were no longer an issue] there would be far less stress. … I would be able to sleep better knowing that my community had good, clean, green, reliable energy that was always going to be there for us. … It would relieve so much tension, so much stress for me, not only from a leadership perspective in [that] I want to make all of our people comfortable, but [also] as a community member relying on the system we have in place to have my freezers going, and to keep my home heated. [When the power is down] I wrap my freezers with thick blankets so that the cold is not escaping. I have a propane stove in my home so that when the lights go out, I can still cook and feed my family.”
