Smitherman says he will establish green tech district


Clamoring for some of those last undecided votes?

George Smitherman announced today that he will establish a green business district if elected mayor. He didn't specify where this eco-friendly Eden will be located, but that it will be an incubator area that will attract environmental NGOs, green energy businesses and research outfits.

Smitherman's plan also includes incorporating unpaid "ambassadors" who will sell Toronto abroad. The announcement came a few hours before he was officially endorsed by former Green Party leader Jim Harris.
