                             Bellerive shoreline
    

    MONTREAL, Sept. 19 /CNW/ -

    
    What:   To help kick off the 15th annual TD Great Canadian Shoreline
            Cleanup, a public cleanup will take place at Parc de la Promenade
            Bellerive on Saturday, September 20. Dozens of volunteers are
            expected at this event organized by the Biosphère and the
            Montréal Biodôme. In 2007, nearly 1,200 Quebecers removed more
            than 3,500 kilograms of garbage from 31 waterways in the
            province.

    When:   Saturday, September 20 2008

            11:30 am - Beginning of Parc de la Promenade Bellerive shoreline
                       cleanup
            11:30 am - 12:30 pm - Spokespeople available for individual
                       interviews

    Where:  Parc de la Promenade Bellerive Chalet, corner of Mercier and
            Bellerive

    Who:    -  Edith Ducharme, Director of Communications, TD Bank Financial
               Group
            -  Rachel Léger, Director, Montréal Biodôme
            -  Angela Griffiths, Director, Conservation and Environmental
               Affairs, Vancouver Aquarium

    Why:    Every year over one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals
            and turtles die through entanglement and ingestion of litter and
            it's estimated that 80 per cent of this litter originates from
            land based sources. This year, over 60,000 Canadians will work
            together from September 20 to 28 to remove nearly 100 tonnes of
            litter from our shorelines and waterways during the 15th annual
            TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup. More than 60 sites will be
            cleaned in Quebec and 2,500 Quebecers will participate including
            325 employees from TD Bank Financial Group.
