    Premier Dalton McGuinty is leading an Ontario delegation representing
innovative companies on a trade mission to China to tap into new markets and
bring new investment to Ontario.

efforts to reduce pollution by 10 per cent between 2006 and 2010. The trade
mission includes nearly 30 delegates from 20 organizations.
