Clean Train Coalition

Hello again!

On Thursday, May 3rd  a private members bill calling for electrification of the Georgetown corridor for the air rail link will be introduced at the Ontario Legislature by Jonah Schein, the MPP for Davenport.  

We have just received word from Queens Park that this is moved up on the schedule and is now to take place at 1 p.m. on Thursday. You are welcome to attend and view from the gallery when the bill is introduced.  

Right now, with a minority government in Queen’s Park, we can win this vote by reaching out, once more, to members from all parties. 

Please help us in this effort by contacting your MPP and cc Premier McGuinty. Tell them that they must vote in favour of this bill. Tell them we do not accept the plan to run diesel trains though our neighbourhoods, next to our schools, our parks, our houses and businesses. And we will not sit by while our air is further polluted. Rather, we will fight for what we know is right: clean, electric, accessible and affordable transit

Please, take a moment to email your MPP, and cc Premier McGuinty (dmcguinty.mpp@liberal.ola.org).  The addresses of politicians along the corridor are below. 

A complete list of MPP’s contact details can be found here: http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/members/member_addresses.do?AddType=QP&locale=en

In addition to emailing, call Premier McGuinty (416-325-1941) and tell him yourself: Toronto demands clean electric trains, not dirty diesels!

The Clean Train Coalition has a long history of building cross-partisan support for our goals. We have worked productively with members of all political parties. 

Thank you for your support.  Clean Transit is possible.
