    1 of 2 2 of 2

      This week as part of David Suzuki's Blue Dot Tour, spoken-word artist Shane Koyczan delivered a powerful video on the importance of saving the planet from climate change.

      "Shoulders" features lyrics by Koyczan and music by him and The Short Story Long, all directed by Johnny Jansen and Amazing Factory Productions.

      Yes, that's the same Shane Koyczan who's on the cover of this week's Georgia Straight for writing the libretto for Vancouver Opera's new work on bullying, Stickboy.

      Koyczan, 38, achieved global fame when his antibullying video was viewed more than 14 million times on YouTube.

      In it, he recounted that his nickname as a kid was "Pork Chop". To this day, he loathes pork chops.
