Mayor David Miller broke his silence on Toronto’s flawed green bin program yesterday.

Well, sort of.

After repeated efforts to interview him by telephone, the Toronto Star caught up to Miller yesterday at an event celebrating the construction of the new — green — Corus Entertainment building on the waterfront.

Miller backed a city official’s assurance the green bin program works.

“I stand by that response,” Miller said, referring to a statement issued yesterday by the head of Toronto’s waste management program.

Asked if he supported, and would co-operate, with the provincial review of municipal organics programs, Miller said, “we always cooperate with the province.”
