Canadian artists have joined together to record a song sponsored by Avaaz, titled You Have a Choice, to mobilize and inspire Canadians to stop a Harper majority from devastating our climate by voting strategically where we live for the candidate most likely to defeat the Conservative candidate.

The Canadian artists who rallied together for this effort include: K-OS, Ed Robertson of the Barenaked Ladies, Ben Kowalewicz of Billy Talent, Adam Gontier of Three Days Grace, Sarah Harmer, Hawksley Workman, Jason Collett of Broken Social Scene, Ian Lefeuvre of The Hundreds and Thousands, Darren Dumas of The Salads and the Arts Offstage Choir under the direction of David Reed.

Make your own video with this song and set it as a response to this, to show that you care, too, and those of you who hate this song, don't even bother commenting. This song is beautiful and gives out a strong messege, through the each artist's ways of style to the song. That's what makes it even more powerful.

[Lyrics]
Oh

Now the lights have gone to half-lit
And we might lose the planet
Find the wonder to believe
That you've got some power up your sleeve

And you'll find yourself wondering
Could you even change anything
Before the world comes crashing down
Not too late, turn it around

And you know you have a choice
If you don't then it's already happened
Only takes one moment, rejoyce
If you don't then it's gone like the wind

You can feel it
Don't let them steal it
Once its a deal
We just can't appeal it
In an instant
Like an infant
We're infactuated with the intent
Like minded
We can find it
Common ground where were all aligned at
We can change things
For the better
Not just dressing it up with a sweater

So remember winters
With the changing seasons
And the caring people
With their loving reasons
What is simply lovely
What never ceases to touch me
Its what's going away
Its what's going away

And you know you have a choice
If you don't then it's already happened
Only takes one moment, rejoyce
If you don't then it's gone like the wind

Tell the prime minister
We just can't afford
There's no room to breathe here
We ain't got no more
And the wealth gives an addiction
To those who suffer the affliction
Of his bleech white teeth

And you know you have a choice
If you don't then it's already happened
Only takes one moment, rejoyce
If you don't then it's gone like the wind
