The City of Toronto and Mayor David Miller were presented with the LO Environment Award during the Mayors’ Green Egg Breakfast at Congress 2010. This award is presented to an organization or individual for outstanding contributions and achievement in maintaining or promoting a sustainable healthy environment.
LO is pleased to present Mayor Miller and the City of Toronto with the Environment Award since one of Mayor Miller’s core values has been environmental stewardship. Hundreds of environmental activities, programs and initiatives are a testament to this commitment, especially through their commitment to green roofs, which provide numerous benefits to a city that is running out of green space.
The Mayors’ Green Breakfast, a kick-off to LO’s Green Forum at Congress 2010, was hosted by LO, the Ontario Parks Association and Communities in Bloom, and provided Mayors and municipal officials with an opportunity to come together and discuss the importance of green spaces in their communities. Nearly 70 mayors and councilors from Oshawa, Goderich, Halton, Woodstock, Waterloo, and Newmarket attended the breakfast. In addition to receiving the Environment Award, Mayor Miller was the keynote speaker.
