Update on the Metrolinx Demo!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Clean Train demonstration at Metrolinx HQ on November 16. It was a fantastic turnout, especially for a weekday morning! Over 60 people took part in a spirited demonstration on the sidewalk in front of the Metrolinx head offices on Bay at Queens Quay. Following the outdoor demonstration, the crowd moved upstairs to the Metrolinx offices and packed the Metrolinx board meeting with CTC supporters.


Community Council on Federal Issues
Thurs. Dec. 9, 2010 7:00-9:00 pm Swansea Community Recreation Centre / 15 Waller Ave., off Windermere
Topic: "Advancing Federal Environment Policies: Protecting Your Health and our Children's Heritage"
Come engage with Gerard Kennedy, federal Environment Critic, on the challenges facing our environment: as local and immediate as our air and water, and as large as climate change, biodiversity and regulating the tar sands.

Eco Energy Fair is at Artscape Wychwood Barns this Sunday, Nov. 28th, from 1-4 p.m.

This is back by popular demand from last year's Hole in the Home Show. Exhibitors will include businesses working in the energy audit field, efficient furnaces, insulation, and solar solutions. There will be neighbours with experience in retrofitting their homes who can answer some of your questions about what worked for them and what kind of a difference their changes are making in reducing their energy consumption. As well we will have the latest on government rebates--yes, there still are some of those available.
