SG-W:/ Today's Toronto Trash protest

Great work, everyone, with special thanks going to Cindy as our honorary
Engler and Margaret--the outraged landfill neighbor!

We had Channel 2, 4, and 7 there (and a DIV affiliate in Lansing
--WILX--told me they wouldn't send anyone, but would pick up DIV's feed.)
Also, we had WJR, CBC Radio Windsor, CKLW.  The GLRC had a flat tire, but
will be here tomorrow to take tape on this issue from me or Mike. And Dan
Shine from the Free Press was there with a photographer. Big fun!!!

The Ecology Center has an on-line petition demanding that Engler/Harding
take action on this issue. You can access it www.ecocenter.org.  Let's keep
up the pressure!  MB
