(1) More Momentum for the Community Right to Know Campaign!
Today, a great article on Community Right to Know (CRTK) hit the front page
of the Toronto Star. It clearly encapsulated the complexity of the issue
and the need for a CRTK bylaw. Please check out the article here.

Show your support for a CRTK bylaw by emailing a letter to the editors at
the Toronto Star and to us:

lettertoed@thestar.ca
lina@torontoenvironment.org

Also, you can help TEA to keep this issue on the radar at City Hall by
sending a letter to your local city councillor and to Mayor David Miller.

We have form letters that you can personalize on our website here.

On Thursday, April 26th, public deputations for Bill 164 at Queen�s Park
will be held. Bill 164 is a private member�s bill introduced by Peter
Tabuns to amend the Consumer Protection Act, the Environmental Protection
Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Act. The bill presses for
streamlined public access to info on toxic pollutants in our neighbourhoods,
in our workplaces and in consumer products.

To make a deputation please call or email:

Tonia Granuum, Clerk, Legilative Assembly, 416-325-3519
tonia_grannum@ontla.ola.org

Let�s keep the momentum going! Thank you!

(2) Action Alert! Speak Up about Clean Air and Global Warming.

It's your turn to tell City Hall what it can do to help Torontonians clean
the air and tackle global warming. The City is holding a "Climate Change
Action Forum" on Sunday, April 29 at 1 pm at Exhibition Place and wants
input on the Mayor's "Change is the Air" document.

TEA will be there and we want members like you there as well. Go here to learn how to register
for this important public forum.

Next week, we'll be sending out a CouncilWatch which will lay out what we'll
be saying at the Climate Change Action Forum.

See you on Sunday, April 29th where we can clean the air and tackle global
warming together.
