Edna Greening Project

Posted on June 12, 2009

This post is a little tardy, but I would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of Edna, the West Bend Residents’ Association, the TTC and the City for helping to make a beautiful linear garden along the north side of the Dundas West Subway station. I had a lot of fun planting and visiting with folks and look forward to watching the garden grow!

Count Me In Toronto

Posted on June 12, 2009

Hey Ward 14! Are you ready for a little friendly competition this summer? If so, here is your chance!

Created by Toronto Hydro, the Count Me In Toronto challenge is a new engaging and unique way to encourage electricity conservation in the City of Toronto. The program will see Toronto‘s wards competing against one another in a friendly competition. The greenest ward at the end of the summer will receive a $5,000 efficient retrofit (such as a lighting upgrade, solar water heater, landscaping and/or outdoor lighting) to a landmark building.

Here’s how the Challenge works:

Toronto Hydro will award “points” to each ward based on a combination of total number of ward residents registering for the challenge online and past participation in our conservation programs. The most points will be awarded for actual participation in the following programs within each ward from May 18 to August 31:

  • Spring Turn On
  • Keep Cool
  • Peaksaver®
  • Refrigerator Round Up

For more information on how to participate in the challenge as well a helpful list of programs, visit www.countmeintoronto.ca today! You can also us the website to register for the challenge online. Just for registering, you’re entered to win one of five MacBooks!

They are hoping to raise money for the children’s book section of the Parkdale Public Library. The students have been visiting the library throughout the year, and would like to give something back. The money raised will go directly into books for the kid’s section, with a sticker inside to say how the book was purchased.

The car wash will be running from approximately 1:00 to 2:30.

A car wash will cost $5.00.
