ALL ABOARD!

ALL ABOARD THE…

HUMAN

TRAIN!

TOMORROW, SATURDAY,

SEPTEMBER 26 RAIN OR SHINE!


Join concerned citizens from acrossToronto this Saturday as we march through communities along the tracks to send a message to Premier McGuinty that he must direct Metrolinx to use only clean, quiet electric trains for any expansion of rail traffic along the
Georgetown corridor.

This is your opportunity to register your opposition to the province’s plan to run over 450 diesel trains through west Toronto neighbourhoods. Minister of the Environment, John Gerretsen, has until October 4thto accept or reject Metrolinx’

Environmental Assessment. Come out this Saturday to add your voice to the growing chorus demanding modern transit and clean air in our communities.

ROUTE:


The Human Train will get rolling in Weston at
8:30 am with Whistle Stops in a number of communities along the way. See the Human Train flyer at http://www.cleantrain.ca/downloads.php for times and locations of local stops.


At
1:00 pm, the Human Train arrives in Sorauren Park for the Main Rally of the day!


At
2:30, the Human Train will leave Sorauren Park for a parade down Lansdowne to Queen and west along Queen to Trinity Bellwoods.

 

No matter where you join the Human Train or how far you walk, we urge everyone from every neighbourhood to join us at SORAUREN PARK at 1:00 pm for the main event.

 

We will all gather together in the largest park beside the railway tracks to demonstrate the strength of public opposition to running diesel trains through heavily populated areas, and strong support for clean, quiet, modern electric trains.


This is an event for all ages, with music, placard painting, arts & crafts, street theatre, and a roster of passionate speakers including:
Toronto‘s Medical Officer of Health, Dr. David McKeown, MPP Cheri Di Novo, TDSB Trustee Irene Atkinson, and Toronto Councillor Gord Perks.


Join musicians,Oh Susanna and Sho, Mo and the Monkey Bunch on stage at
Sorauren Park, and then march with Gary Diggins and the GTA drummers as the Human Train leaves Sorauren Park for a parade through Queen West.


Start close to home and walk as much of the route as you can, but wherever you live, join everyone for the main event at
Sorauren Park at 1:00 pm.

Contact info@cleantrain.ca if youd like to walk the entire route from Weston to Queen West. Also need volunteers to be part of some street theatre – the Metrolinx White Elephant Train.


Bring your family, friends and neighbours! Make a banner, bring noisemakers (musical instruments, hand-made drums, whistles) and wear something Clean Train blue.

 

SEE YOU ON SATURDAY RAIN
