We will be discussing our strategy to build support for the Clean Train movement in communities along the line and our plan to use the Clean Train Pledge Campaign and other strategic initiatives to pressure Premier McGuinty, who ultimately has the say.

Any further items to be added?
DIG IN will adjourn for the summer and resume meeting on Sept. 8, 2010.
After the DIGIN meetings, many people often re-convene at a local restaurant or pub for a post-meeting social.
The following meeting announcement comes from the Bloor Improvement Group (BIG) chair, Donna Cowan:

Here are my notes from the May 19 2009 Ward 18 All Candidates Meeting, held at Casa da Madeira on Dupont St. in the Junction Triangle. These notes are just an attempt to capture what the candidates said, and how they responded to questions. I'm keeping personal opinion out of it for now, although I might follow up with some of that in the comments. Apologies if it's long-winded, but I tried to scribble down as much as I could. I obviously missed many things that were said too.
Thankfully, the professional reporters were there too. For a much better writeup of this meeting, check out the article in The Villager: Ward 18 candidates introduce their campaigns. Local blog The Bloordale Press also has a writeup, including some video from the candidates' opening remarks.
I'd love to hear other peoples' opinions and reactions to this meeting. And of course, if I made any mistakes in these notes, please feel free to correct me. I also encourage the candidates to post any followup comments here too.
All eight registered Ward 18 candidates were present: Ana Bailão, Kevin Beaulieu, Frank de Jong, Nha le, Kirk Russell, Jack Triolo, Hema Vyas, and Ken Wood.
