Trash Talk
Toronto Mayor Asks Bush To Intervene In Trash Row
Reuters

The flamboyant mayor of Canada's biggest city wants U.S. President
George W. Bush to intervene in a dispute with Michigan's governor over
garbage. Toronto Mayor Mel Lastman wrote to Bush on Wednesday asking him
to protect a five-year contract between the city and U.S. waste-disposal
company Republic Services that would see 300,000 tonnes of the Toronto
garbage shipped to Michigan landfill sites each year. Michigan Governor
John Engler has asked Toronto council to break the contract with
Republic because of concerns about hazardous commercial waste.  Michigan
officials said that the Toronto's waste doesn't meet U.S. environmental
standards and asked Canadian authorities last week to launch an
environmental review.
