Media Advisory - A live presentation of the slideshow, focusing on Ontario and Canada, Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth comes to Kortright



    VAUGHAN, ON, Sept. 21 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:        Victoria Serda is a town councillor in Saugeen Shores,
                 founder of the local environmental group Green Horizons,
                 Deputy Leader of the Green Party of Ontario, and a volunteer
                 presenter for the Climate Project. She has been trained by
                 Al Gore to give his slideshow presentation in Ontario, and
                 she will be giving a 60 minute presentation with some
                 information about the effects of climate change in Ontario,
                 and her daughter Corrina, who is 11, will give a short
                 presentation with some practical solutions about what each
                 of us can do to help. With the environment being the No. 1
                 Canadian concern in the polls, we all have the opportunity
                 to turn this climate crisis around when we do our part, work
                 together and rise to the challenge.

    WHAT ELSE:   Feature Presentation: The Ontario Solar Initiative presented
                 by Paul Gipe

                 Paul Gipe has written extensively about wind energy for both
                 the popular and trade press. He has lectured widely in
                 Europe, North America and the South Pacific on wind energy
                 and how to minimize its impact on the environment and the
                 communities of which it is a part. In 1998 the
                 World Renewable Energy Congress designated Gipe a "pioneer
                 in renewable energy," one of the group's highest honors.
                 Also, he is credited as the principal architect of
                 Ontario's Standard Offer Program, what some have called the
                 most progressive renewable energy policy development in
                 North America in two decades.

                 Paul Gipe will be giving a lecture describing how we can use
                 Ontario's pioneering Standard Offer Program to create an
                 initiative that will rival the California Solar Initiate.
                 The Standard offer program will need to be bolstered to meet
                 this challenge, Paul will outline the costs and benefits of
                 an initiative that would see 400,000 rooftop solar systems
                 in Ontario by 2017.

    WHEN:        12:00 - 1:00 p.m., Saturday, September 22, 2007 (Paul Gipe's
