Toronto hosting largest municipal conference in Ontario
The 2003 Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Annual Conference kicks
off at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel on Sunday, August 17 and continues until
Wednesday, August 20. The AMO municipal conference is the largest in Ontario
and is expected to draw over 1400 delegates to the City of Toronto.

Mayor Mel Lastman is extending a special welcome this year to all those who are
attending: "Toronto is always honoured to host this widely-acclaimed conference
which allows municipal leaders from across Ontario to work together in
addressing the critical issues facing all of our cities."

This year's conference theme is What's Beyond the Bend and will focus on such
topics as Municipal Finance - New Rules and Tools, a 21st Century New Deal for
Ontario Municipalities - Is There Any Hope, and Future Directions in New
Affordable Housing. The conference also features a number of key speakers
including well-known author Dr. Lance Secretan, Ontario Premier Ernie Eves,
Liberal Leader Dalton McGuinty, and NDP Leader Howard Hampton

Delegates will have the opportunity to meet directly with key decision makers
and to learn and share information about government initiatives and best
practices, the impact of new legislative and policy changes, and address
critical issues around fiscal sustainability.
