Media Advisory - Argos, TorontoFC, and Jays Care join Lieutenant Governor in literacy event



    TORONTO, Jan. 10 /CNW/ - TorontoFC goalkeeper, Mr. Greg Sutton, and
Toronto Argonaut cornerback, Mr. Byron Parker, will join the Honourable David
C. Onley, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, and the Jays Care Foundation to
speak with students about literacy and his Book Drive at Chief Dan George
Elementary School in Scarborough on January 11, 2008.
    Senior members of Toronto Police Services, the Ontario Provincial Police,
and Land Forces Central Area of the Canadian Forces will also attend because
of their close participation with the Book Drive.
    Together, these special guests will read a humorous children's book to
350 students and explain the importance of literacy while supporting the
Lieutenant Governor's Book Drive. Ontarians can donate books until January 18
at any Toronto Police Services station or OPP detachment throughout the
province.
    In the tradition of former-Lieutenant Governor James Bartleman, the
Honourable David Onley launched a Book Drive on January 1 to collect brand new
children's books for Aboriginal youth in Ontario's Northern Native
communities.
    Media are welcomed and encouraged to attend this wonderful event that
will support Ontario's youth and help fight illiteracy with the help of some
of Toronto's most talented athletes.
