On February 25 Young turned up at a march and rally in support of the United For Old Growth campaign, which is looking to stop the Canadian government from allowing logging companies from destroying old-growth forests.
“I’m only here for those trees up there,” Young told the audience. “It’s a precious, sacred thing, these old trees. They show us the power of nature when we are being threatened. They show us the past. They show us our future. That’s something that I hope our Canadian government and business section will recognise. These trees have lasted so long. They deserve Canada’s respect.”
He then performed “Heart Of Gold” from 1972’s Harvest and “Comes A Time” from the 1978 album of the same name. Check out fan-shot footage below:
