TORONTO EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL AL­LIANCE 30 Dun­can, 416-596-0660 We’d hate to imag­ine what this city would look like if the Toronto En­vi­ron­men­tal Al­liance hadn’t been formed back in 88. Its heavy-hit­ting re­search and per­sua­sive lob­by­ing ef­forts helped stop the dump­ing of toxic chem­i­cals down our drains, ban pes­ti­cides on lawns and put green bins on ev­ery doorstep. They’re dy­namo de­tec­tives when it comes to sniff­ing out loop­holes that might be open to abuse and dig­ging up dirt on things like On­tario’s plan to burn rather than re­cy­cle used tires. And where would we be with­out TEA’s an­nual Smog Re­port Card? (Hey, th­ese are the folks who wrote Toronto’s orig­i­nal Smog Ac­tion Plan.) On air qual­ity, en­ergy, tran­sit, waste, wa­ter and tox­ics, TEA has our backs.
