CARIBOU GUARDIAN, STARR GAUTHIER, SAYING:

"I used to work in oil and gas, and you know a lot of that stuff where we were kind of like extracting resources and so to be part of something that is really opposite that, you know, I can go to bed at night knowing like, yes I am contributing to this, right?"
