News surfaced noting Drake took a trip on his private plane from Hamilton, Ontario to Toronto. The trip was reportedly only 18 minutes, and the rapper received backlash for the trip with many calling out the amount of CO2 emissions that could have been created.
Climate campaign coordinator Ian Borsuk spoke on the matter while on CTV News Toronto, saying, “I think we need to as a society have a conversation about whether we should be allowing these private flights to be happening in the first place. I think it can really be frustrating for some folks when, you know, they're thinking to themselves, 'Okay, well, I'm doing everything I can in my daily routine to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions, such as taking public transit, buying local products, and things like that.” Since then, Drake has responded to the backlash.
“This is just them moving planes to whatever airport they are being stored at, for anyone who was interested in the logistics,” said the rapper. He continued, “Nobody takes that flight.” Watch above.
