Belated Congratulations to the City with Political Will on Climate Change! Since returning from Africa I learned of our City receiving the 2006 World Leadership Award announced at a Gala Dinner in London, England in December/06. The award is in the environmental category, and internationally recognizes the Mayor and The City for efforts to protect the environment and focus on sustainable development. In part this recognized that Calgary has committed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from City operations by 50 per cent below 1990 levels by 2012. This is well beyond the Kyoto target! Calgary is the first city in North America to take such extraordinary steps to reduce our impact on the environment. Send David Day, Environment Services, and the Mayor a letter of congratulations.
