TORONTO, Jan. 1 /CNW/ - The Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant
Governor of Ontario, will outline the details of his book drive collecting new
books for aboriginal youth in Ontario's far north in the Queen's Park media
studio on Wednesday, January 2, 2008.
Ontarians are reminded to buy a brand new book while they're shopping the
sales after the holidays.
"During this special season, I encourage all Ontarians to purchase a book
or two for our native youth in Ontario's northern regions," said Lieutenant
Governor Onley. "Ontarians donated new books at my New Year's Levee today and
I hope many more books will be contributed before the deadline of January 18."
As in the past, the books can be dropped at any Ontario Provincial Police
(OPP) detachment throughout the province and, within Toronto, at any Toronto
Police Services station between Tuesday, January 1, and Friday, January 18.
To assist and encourage Ontario's aboriginal youth, the Honourable James
K. Bartleman initiated two book drives during his term as Lieutenant Governor.
Ontarians opened their hearts and bookshelves in 2004 and 2007, and over two
million books were collected.
