>>=================
>>
>>What's the Tooker Gomberg for Mayor of Toronto Campaign about?
>>
>>Elections are about more than just voting. They are a time to discuss and
>>consider our potential to meet our dreams about justice, ecology and
>>democracy -- the sort of future we want.
>>
>>Can you help us rock this town?
>>
>>We imagine a Toronto where people don't have to live in cardboard boxes 
>>and
>>our kids don't have to use inhalers to breathe. Where we compost and
>>recycle our garbage instead of dumping it on others who don't want it.
>>Where the TTC is quick, far-reaching and accessible, cyclists abound in
>>safe bicycle lanes, and we can safely swim in Lake Ontario. We want to
>>create employment and wealth by protecting our greatest resources -- 
>>people
>>and the environment.
>>
>>Our campaign for Mayor of Toronto is electrifying this municipal election
>>with a frank look at our problems and a hopeful look at solutions. Our
>>perspective is global: what have other cities done? What works? Our
>>solutions are practical, popular, and affordable.
>>
>>Like composting. It was my leadership as Edmonton City Councillor that 
>>lead
>>to the development of the state-of-the-art composting and recycling
>>facility that now diverts 70% of Edmonton's waste. And I was one of the 
>>key
>>organizers that succeeded in shutting down the Adams Mine proposal.
>>
>>Our campaign is also talking about smog, and the need to shut down 
>>Lakeview
>>coal-fired power plant. We're calling on Toronto Hydro to aggressively
>>promote energy efficiency/conservation to help phase out coal and to 
>>reduce
>>the electricity bills. And we're talking about the need for massive
>>investments into renewable sources of electricity, such as wind, solar,
>>geothermal, biomass and small hydroelectric.
>>
>>The Gomberg for Mayor campaign is talking about hunger and about community
>>gardens. About the 60,000 homeless people in Toronto, at least 2 of whom
>>die every week, not to mention the 100,000 people waiting for social
>>housing! We're talking about the need for fair tax reforms for tenants who
>>pay 3 times more property taxes through rent than homeowners. We've got a
>>housing crisis on our hands, Mel and Mike! I'm willing to sleep outside
>>with the homeless (and I did). Are you?
>>
>>Check out our website, http://www.GombergForMayor.org daily: you'll learn
>>about our progressive platforms to support public transit, reduce sprawl,
>>ban pesticide use, promote the arts, and ensure citizen participation.
>>We'll give you the latest news coverage, including video! We'll invite you
>>to parties that celebrate the musicians in our community, and to rallies 
>>in
>>the streets.
>>
>>Help us get the word out. Could you distribute some leaflets? Would you
>>like a lawn sign? Call 968-7626. Could you make a donation? Please make
>>your cheque out to Gomberg for Mayor, 244 Gerard Street East, Toronto, M5A
>>2G2. Toronto's generous election rebate program means that for donations 
>>up
>>to $300 you'll receive 75% back. That is, if you send us a cheque for 
>>$300,
>>you'll receive a cheque back from the city for $225.
>>

>>And don't forget to vote on Nov. 13th. It's your right.

>>Join us. Let's laugh and eat and sing and dance together as we change the
>>world right here in Toronto.
