1 – 6 pm (Keynote speakers at 3 pm)
SORAUREN PARK (on Sorauren Ave, 1 block west of Lansdowne, south of Dundas Street West)
Join the Clean Train Coalition for the Go Electric Music Festival. Send a message to Premier McGuinty that Toronto wants an electric rail link to the airport now, not dirty diesel. This FREE, family-friendly event will feature speakers, children’s activities, a community BBQ and musicians including:
• The drumming sounds of: Pound for Pound
• Kids band: The Monkey Bunch
• Indie rock recording artists: The Stormalongs
• “Clean Train Anthem”: Rob Joy
• Singer songwriter: Peter Katz
This event will be fun for people of all ages, but it is also an important demonstration of continued community opposition to the diesel-based plan, and support for immediate electrification. There is still time to change this plan, but we must show the government that citizens are engaged and committed to this effort. Add your voice to the growing chorus calling for electric trains along the Georgetown Corridor. Help us ensure that electrification becomes a reality.

Call for Volunteers!
Your help is needed to distribute leaflets announcing the festival as well as to help out on the day of the event.
Distributing leaflets door-to-door is still the most effective way of spreading the word. We reach neighbours who would otherwise not hear about the event. And the leaflet contains important news about the campaign.
The leaflets are ready for pick-up. Please email Rob at firstname.lastname@example.org to get leaflets and to find out where they still need to be handed out. The leaflets are also available on our site if you wish to print them out yourself. Go to www.cleantrain.ca to download them.
For more information or to volunteer on the day of the event, please contact Vin at email@example.com.
