If I were to peg the time in my life where I started really thinking about the environment, it would be around the time I met Grant Fraser. I first met Grant when he ran as a Green in the 2004 Federal election. I was greatly impressed with his commitment and with the way he talked about issues. Grant has a great knack for communication. Grant contributed to my thinking about caring for the environment not only as the right thing to do, but also as a huge business opportunity and a source for well paying jobs.
Grant and I discussed a cardboard recycling educational program for local businesses recently. A member of the downtown Community Ambassador Patrol recently brought in front of City Council the issue of downtown dumpsters filled with cardboard. I think this is an important issue to address.
