West Toronto Mothers Rally Against Diesel Train Expansion
Toxic Legacy Created by Pan Am Games Prompts Mass Phone-in to Premier
TORONTO, Aug. 29, 2012 /CNW/ -
|Who:|| Junction Triangle Rail Committee, a group of local residents in West
Toronto opposed to the massive expansion of noisy and polluting diesel
train service along the Georgetown South rail corridor.
|What:|| "Junction Triangle Mothers Against Diesel Potluck." Frustrated by the
government's rush to build a diesel rail link to the airport in time for the
Pan Am Games, residents of the Junction Triangle are hosting a lunchtime
potluck in the park and taking their demands for electric trains directly to
Premier Dalton McGuinty with a group phone-in.
|Where:||Perth Square Park 350 Perth Avenue (Dupont/Dundas)|
|| Thursday, August 30, 2012
11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
|Why:|| Surrounded by train tracks on all sides, the Junction Triangle is situated at
the epicentre of rail activity in West Toronto and faces the greatest impact
from expansion plans now under construction.
