TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - The Honourable David C. Onley, Lieutenant
Governor of Ontario, is pleased to announce an extension to his drive to
collect new books for Aboriginal youth in Ontario's northern communities.
Several thousand brand new books have been donated by generous Ontarians
and have been dropped off at Toronto Police Services stations and Ontario
Provincial Police detachments in Toronto and throughout the province.
"We have received many requests to extend the deadline allowing
individuals and organizations more time to contribute," said the Lieutenant
Governor. "I invite all Ontarians to drop by their local book store and pick
up a book or two for aboriginal youth who live in remote parts of our province
where no book stores exist."
The Book Drive will last until Thursday, January 31, 2008. Donations of
brand new books can be dropped-off at any Toronto Police Service station or
Ontario Provincial Police detachment for the duration.
