The Canadian Government will recognized one of the brightest stars of the Greek community in Canada this Friday June 15th 2012, at 8pm during the St. Nicholas Greek Festival (3840 Finch Ave E). The Hon. Charles Sousa, Ontario Minister of Citizenship and Immigration, will present Ted Manziaris with the Queen’s Jubilee Medal for his outstanding contributions and philanthropy.
This is one of the most prestigious awards in Canada and Ted Manziaris fully deserves it. Manziaris’ latest philanthropic commitment is to the Greek Students of Canada to help them bring back and pay for the Modern Hellenic Studies course at the University of Toronto. Manziaris is also one of the creators of the Greek Film Retrospective Festival, an organization which brings Greek movies to Toronto.
Ted Manziaris and his partner Louis Anagnostakos run one of the coolest companies in Toronto, as they are helping the community and environment while at the same time making a profit. Turtle Island Recycling employs six hundred people and offers all kinds of recycling services for all types of waste.
