    TORONTO, June 22 /CNW/ -

    
    WHO:   -  Mark Wilson, Chair, Waterfront Toronto
           -  Hon. John Baird, Minister of the Environment and federal
              Minister responsible for the Toronto Waterfront Revitalization
              Initiative
           -  Hon. David Caplan, Minister of Public Infrastructure Renewal

           -  Brian Denney, CAO, Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA)
           -  Cindy Wilkey, Chair, West Don Lands Committee

    WHAT:  Representatives from Waterfront Toronto, the three governments,
           TRCA and members of the community will take part in an event
           officially marking the start of construction of the berm and Don
           River Park, as part of West Don Lands revitalization.

           The construction of this berm will alleviate the risk of flooding,
           which previously prevented development in this area. Don River
           Park will be built on top of the berm and will be the cornerstone
           public space for the new West Don Lands community.

           West Don Lands is the first new waterfront neighbourhood being
           developed as part of waterfront revitalization.

    WHEN:  Monday, June 25, 2007
           8:30 a.m.
           West Don Lands Site
           (Entrance off of Bayview, south of King St; parking is available
           onsite)

           If you are traveling to the event by TTC, exit the King or Queen
           streetcar at River Street.
