Lastman Addresses Business Luncheon in London
Toronto - Mayor Mel Lastman spent his noon hour promoting Toronto at a business
luncheon hosted by the Canadian High Commissioner at Canada House in Trafalgar
Square, London, England earlier today.

"In Toronto, we're passionate about our quality of life, our growing film and
telecom industries and our robust economy - but most of all, we're passionate
about our city's bid to host the 2008 Summer Games," Lastman said.

The Mayor said the driving force behind Toronto's desire to host the games runs
deeper than money or infrastructure.

"For us the Olympics are about more than that: They are a celebration of
culture, and there isn't a city in the world better suited to throw that party
than the City of Toronto."

"We can do business together - and with a bit of luck on July 13, we can
celebrate the success of Toronto's Olympic bid together."

Joining the Mayor at the luncheon was Deputy Prime Minister Herb Grey.

The Mayor will remain in London over the weekend before joining the rest of the
Toronto 2008 Bid committee in Moscow early next week. Copies of the Mayor's
London address are available upon request.
