Ward 1 was recognized as the greenest ward in Mississauga by achieving the greatest participation in the first grow local/eat local challenge of the Let Your Green Show Campaign.
"Congratulations to Ward 1 and thank you to all participants who helped turn Mississauga green by growing their own food, planting trees or supporting our local farmers over this past summer and fall," said Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey, member of Mississauga's Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC).
By registering a name and postal code, each action a resident took was counted on an interactive map and used to recognize the greenest ward in Mississauga. Ward 1 Councillor Jim Tovey accepted the Greenest Ward Award on behalf of the residents of the ward, and a free skating party will be held for Ward 1 residents at the Port Credit Arena next spring to celebrate their achievement.
The award was presented by Brenda Osborne, the City of Mississauga's director of the Environment Division and Simone Banz, the Region of Peel's planning manager of the Integrated Planning Division.
"Every action taken on climate change counts in helping us make our green plans real," said Brenda Osborne, director, Environment Division. "Come back in the spring and we'll be ready with new actions to help Mississauga Let Your Green Show and use less water."
The Let Your Green Show Campaign was developed through a partnership between the City of Mississauga and the Region of Peel. The collaborative campaign engages residents in actions identified in both the City's Living Green Master Plan and the Peel Climate Change Strategy that will help mitigate and adapt to the impact of climate change at the local level.
