The Germans are coming! The Germans are coming!

07Sep11
An excerpt from today’s press release of the day, fresh out of my inbox:
Please note that Mrs. Hannelore Kraft – President of the Bundesrat of the Federal Republic of Germany and Minister- President of the State of North-Rhine-Westphalia – will be in Toronto (North York) this morning, September 7th, at 10am.
Minister-President Kraft will plant a German oak tree at the site of the new net-zero energy German International School Toronto (50 Erie Street, North York) which will open in time for the 2012 academic year. The German Bundesrat (“Federal Council”) is a legislative body that represents Germany’s 16 states at the federal level.
  • The school is relocating to a decommissioned church that will be enlarged and incorporate state-of-the-art, energy-efficient materials and renewable-energy technologies with the potential to generate at least as much energy as it consumes, making the school a “net zero” energy consumer with a significantly reduced carbon footprint.
  • There will be a brief 30-minute program involving the school’s chair, students and Mrs. Kraft, ending with the tree planting.
  • Senior members of the Canada-Germany business community who are partners in the new school project (2 significant financial donations will also be announced) will also be on hand including Gino diNezza, National Sales Manager for Bosch Thermotechnology Canada
