SAINT-LAURENT, May 14 /CNW Telbec/ - In connection with the One Child, One Tree program, members of Saint-Laurent Borough Council today marked the
birth or adoption of Saint-Laurent children in 2010 on the occasion of
the first-ever public-tree planting ceremony, held at the Bassin de la
Brunante in Parc Marcel-Laurin.
During the event, which coincided with Quebec Family Week, families who
had enrolled their children under the program received a certificate
identifying the species and location of the tree twinned with their
child as well as an info-sheet. Borough Council members also unveiled a
commemorative plaque highlighting the site reserved for the One Child, One Tree program in the park.
"In 2009, we undertook a commitment to make Saint-Laurent a greener
community by launching several initiatives aimed at planting trees on
public land," said Alan DeSousa, mayor of Saint-Laurent and vice-chair
of Montréal's Executive Committee. "The One Child, One Tree program was among these initiatives. The program also gave us the
opportunity to link two of our priorities: to put trees at the heart of
all our decisions and to make Saint-Laurent a destination of choice for
Citizens wishing to enrol their children, born or adopted in 2011, in
the One Child, One Tree program may do so at the Borough of Saint-Laurent's Citizens' Office.
