Toronto - Toronto deputy mayor and mayoral candidate Joe Pantalone may be in third place in the polls but he is still hanging in there. Pantalone released his environmental plans for the city if he becomes the next mayor of Toronto.
In a press release emailed to Digital Journal, Toronto mayor hopeful Joe Pantalone established his environmental platforms, which includes economic growth while also reducing the city’s ecological footprint.
“Joe has green fingerprints all over our great city, whose stock exchange lists more 'green tech' companies than any other exchange in the world,” the press release said. “As Tree Advocate Joe has seen the number of new trees planted each year rise from 9500 to 109,000. Joe was the champion of the Green Roof Bylaw, and of North America's first urban windmill.”
Pantalone’s vision for Toronto will be “clean, green and sustainable.” One of the mayoral candidate’s pledges is to complete the incumbent mayor’s Transit City plan (120 km of high speed trains). Another pledge is to “prioritize partnerships with green industry” in the Greater Toronto Area, including Scarborough, Weston and Jane Street and Finch Avenue.
The deputy mayor wants to maintain public ownership of Toronto Hydro, while also “achieving” 500 megawatts of conservative energy and 500 megawatts of renewable energy.
If elected mayor, Pantalone also wants to double the number of farmers markets and community gardens. He also wants to succeed in the 50 percent of local food procurement in Toronto operations.
Finally, Pantalone wants to construct a pedestrian mall between Yonge Street and Dundas Street, and Yonge Street and Queen Street.
