Live Green Toronto!

Every year, the City of Toronto has environment days on Saturdays hosted by Toronto City Councillors taking turns to invite the entire neighbourhood to an environment-themed party. This is an annual tradition that continues for the entire summer. Having a green street festival is a logical development for the city that prides itself on being the greenest in North America.

Mayor Miller, who was very supportive of green initiatives for the duration of his term leading the City, started a friendly competition with Chicago to see which city could be the most environment-friendly. Gigi has never been to Chicago, but I can certainly vouch for Toronto as far as environmental track record is concerned. There is always room for improvement, but Toronto tries really hard to make sure we live as responsibly as possible.

Today we are visitng the Live Green Toronto street party showcasing more than 100 environment-friendly vendors and also some of Canada's great bands - see the Crash Test Dummies and other performers on the Canadian Tire main stage, free of charge! Yonge Street will be cordoned off between Queen and Dundas for the festival, directly next to the Eaton Centre. Come along and join the fun!
