Green Park leader rolling in with Friends

Ontario Green Party leader Mike Schreiner, will make a stop in Picton today to greet party faithful and friends. He is among more than 400 people embarking on the 12th annual 660km Friends For Life Bike Rally, supporting the Toronto People with AIDS Foundation. Schreiner is taking part in the rally leg from Cobourg to Adolphustown today.
There are more than 18,000 people living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto, approximately one quarter of Canada’s HIV-positive population. The foundation provides practical information and support services, such as a food bank, health promotion, and treatment programs. The Friends For Life Bike Rally supports PWA and helps to raise over half of its annual operating budget.
The journey from Toronto to Montreal features skilled riders and beginners – from the ages of 18 to 70 – joined in their passion to support friends and loved ones.
The public is welcome to meet Schreiner from 6-9 p.m. at 392 County Road 7, Picton (across from the old school) for a barbecue and idea exchange on the Green Energy Act, municipal government, sustainable agriculture, wellness and more. Voluntary donations for the pulled pork sandwich (or vegetarian equivalent). RSVP to Treat Hull, President, Prince Edward Hastings Green Party of Ontario 613-503-0027 or treathull@gpo.ca

Tuesday, Schreiner joins local solar businessman Russ Brookes, President of 123 Clean Energy Inc., Brian Veenstra, Owner, Veenstra Machine & Fabrication, and cancelled solar energy customer Derek Wolfe to discuss the government’s recent changes to the solar MicroFIT program.
He plans to discuss “how the Liberal government’s mismanagement of the solar MicroFIT program will have a devastating effect on local homeowners, farmers and businesses who have invested in the program” on Tuesday, July 27th at 7 p.m. at  The Waring House, Highway 33 (Loyalist Parkway) and County Rd. 1, Picton.
