City workers could one day be singing the drive-thru blues

“We expect the public to think twice about using the drive-thrus. People may come up with what they see as all these small steps, but all these steps make a difference at the end.”

 

 

A move to help “green” the fleet of City of Toronto vehicles has caught the eye of a couple of Peterborough councillors.
Toronto City Council will, next month, consider a proposal to ban City of Toronto vehicles from using drive-thrus.
Peterborough councillors Shirley Eggleton and Dean Pappas says it’s not a bad idea.
“I would definitely be in support of investigating this further,” notes Coun. Eggleton.
The move is aimed at cutting greenhouse emissions in the Big Smoke.
Coun. Dean Pappas has often used his position on council to fight for environmental issues.
“I’d like to sit down and talk to the director of public services about this (banning City vehicles from drive-thrus). I like to lead by example and if we’re wasting time, idling, waiting for a coffee, that’s taxpayers’ dollars. It’s not a bad idea.”
But Coun. Eggleton says the public has a responsibility too with regard to the environment.
“We expect the public to think twice about using the drive-thrus. People may come up with what they see as all these small steps, but all these steps make a difference at the end.”
