On September 21st 2020, a US nonprofit organization called World Population Balance launched a billboard campaign in Vancouver that urged people to stop overpopulation and limit their family size in order to reduce their carbon footprint. The campaign has received a heated response – the organization has pulled some of its ads and removed staff information from its website after receiving threats. True North’s Lindsay Shepherd interviews Dave Gardner, Executive Director of World Population Balance, about the controversial campaign.
