Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - The 2007 TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup Kicks-Off in Montreal on September 12, 2007



    To help protect Canada's environment, Biodôme and the Biosphère invite
    local media to learn about the effects of garbage left over during the
    summer

    TORONTO, Sept. 11 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:     To help kick start this year's nationwide cleanup event, the
              Vancouver Aquarium, TD Bank Financial Group, the Montreal
              Biodôme and Environment Canada's Biosphère are joining forces
              to showcase a collection of shoreline litter recently removed
              from Montreal's shorelines. Spokespeople will be on hand to
              discuss the effects that shoreline litter has on our
              environment.

              The TD Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup was created by the
              Vancouver Aquarium and has been operating for more than 12
              years. Today, it is one of the largest conservation initiatives
              in the country. With a record number of registrations this
              year, participants will clean up more than 1,000 shorelines
              along rivers, streams, lakes, oceans and wetlands in every
              region of Canada from September 15 through 23, 2007. All data
              collected on the shorelines across Canada is tallied by the
              Vancouver Aquarium.

              After the exclusive media event on September 12th, Montrealers
              are invited to participate in a public shoreline cleanup co-
              organized by the Biodôme and the Biosphère that will take place
              on Saturday, September 15th, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at
              the André-Corbeil-dit-Tranchemontagne Park in Rivière-des-
              Prairies. Media are welcome.
