Letter from One Tonne Toronto

Dear members of the Bloor West Village Residents’ Association,

Many thanks for having me join you at your fall meeting. It was a pleasure to meet many of your residents and I appreciated the opportunity to answer questions and provide information about climate change, and about the many programs and services that exist in Toronto to help individuals save money, save energy, and ensure a positive future.

I found that people were most interested in a few key areas, such as renewable energy: the Toronto Renewable Energy Cooperative, for example, who runs the wind turbine down at Exhibition Place (http://www.trec.on.ca). There was also a significant amount of interest in Green$aver (http://www.greensaver.org), the organization that offers home energy audits as part of the EnerGuide for Houses Incentive Program. Finally, I received a number of questions about Earth Day Canada’s scholarship program for students.

One-Tonne Toronto offers links to individuals to these and many other programs available across Toronto to help individuals engage in the fight against climate change, and for a healthier community.

Please feel free to contact us at 41-one-tonne, or visit our website:
www.onetonnetoronto.ca for help identifying ways that you can make a difference. We all have a part to play, and the rewards are well worth it!

Amanda Mongeon
Coordinator, One-Tonne Toronto
