Another component of this year's Summit is a GTA-wide education campaign that
encourages drivers to avoid unnecessary idling and take action to reduce smog.

The Smog Summit Roundtable Discussion and Announcement on June 20 will bring
together government, industry and the community to showcase smog and energy
reduction initiatives. Special focus will be on transportation, energy,
business, industry and government, natural and built environment, as well as
education and outreach. Building on the success of previous Summits, new
commitments in the 2003 Inter-governmental Declaration on Clean Air will also
be identified.

The fourth annual Smog Summit explores solutions to improving air quality and
reducing related health risks through collaborative action and citizen
involvement. The focus for this year's event is making the connection between
smog and energy use.

Smog Summit 2003 is sponsored by the City of Toronto, the Province of Ontario,
the Government of Canada, the Toronto Atmospheric Fund, Enbridge Gas
Distribution Inc., Toronto Hydro, Ontario Power Generation, the Clean Air
Partnership and the GTA Clean Air Council.

Participants must register for all Smog Summit activities on-line or by phone.
