Clean Train Coalition - Fern Ave. Meeting

The Clean Train Coalition are hosting a public meeting at the Fern Ave. Public School, 28 Fern Ave. (Map), on Tuesday June 2, 7-9pm. See below for details.

Fern Avenue Meeting, June 2, 7-9 pm

Did you know there are 25000+ kids who go to school along the Georgetown Corridor? And thousands of pre-schoolers too. We need to act now to protect their health in the coming years.

This coming Tuesday, there will be a meeting at Fern Ave Public School, sponsored by the Clean Train Coalition. This meeting will provide vital information about Metrolinx’s plans to expand diesel rail service along the Georgetown Corridor, the negative health effects of those plans and how we can lobby government to promote quicker electrification of the trains. Various local politicians, trustees and school council chairs have been invited and most have said they will attend.

Let me (Peter Morgan) know if you have any questions, and/or you think you can spare an hour or two to put posters up about this meeting on Saturday (outreach@cleantrain.ca). If you’d like to become more active in the campaign or have suggestions, your help would be greatly appreciated. Here’s our website: www.cleantrain.ca.
