Press release from the issuing company

February 14, 2008 TORONTO – PrintAction magazine, the leading publication for Canada’s graphic communications industry, is set once again to celebrate the efforts of those in the printing industry working to reduce their impacts on the environment. The Environmental Printing Awards (EPA), now in its third year, will feature a keynote speech by renowned humanitarian Stephen Lewis at the February 27 gala. Global Ontario anchor Leslie Roberts will host the Awards evening at the historic Palais Royale Ballroom in Toronto.

Stephen Lewis, humanitarian, diplomat, and former UN special envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa, will deliver his speech following previous years’ memorable speeches by Brian Mulroney and David Suzuki.
