Green Party Reaches Out In Toronto

Green Party Leader Jim Harris to address Toronto Centre Community BBQ Attention: Environment Editor, Media Editor, News Editor, Government/Political Affairs Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 16, 2005) - The Green Party of Canada is reaching out to the downtown sector in Toronto at an important time in the party's life. The Green Party of Canada - Toronto Centre EDA is hosting its first annual Green Community BBQ Sunday, September 18, 2005.

This is the first major Green-awareness event in the Toronto Centre District and the timing is appropriate for Toronto, given the many challenges it currently faces - waste management, clean air, energy conservation, transportation and rising fuel costs.

Toronto Centre represents a very strategic district in terms of economic diversity and demographics - it's representative of both of Rosedale and St. Jamestown. Toronto Centre is also awash in a vibrant youth culture, as evidenced by some of the event's attendees, including the Ryerson University Greens and Canada World Youth.

Green party leader, Jim Harris will speak at 12:30 pm and will be on hand for media interviews to discuss issues such as the ethics of energy, the recent rise in energy prices, sustainability and the economic impact of environmental efficiency.
