TORONTO & CHICAGO VOW TO FIGHT TRUMP’S CASH SLASH TO GREAT LAKES RESTORATION

Mayor JOHN TORY (L) met with Mayor RAHM EMANUEL (R) while visiting CHICAGO this week. Both of them are united in their efforts to oppose Donald Trump’s proposal to cut federal cash to the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. Funds from the initiative are used to fight algae blooms, pollution and invasive species. “We don’t want to go backwards on that and (cutting $300 million) would take us backwards (on cross-border efforts)”, said Mayor Tory.

Mayor Emanuel has announced that CHICAGO will adopt the Paris climate-change guidelines no matter what Donald Trump has in mind.

Toronto, Montreal and Chicagothree amigos – plan to do more work on a joint position and sign a resolution in Montreal later this month.
