HELLO CLEAN TRAINERS! Just a reminder that the CTC is having a General Info Meeting Tuesday, June 28th. We hope you can make it! 

METROLINX HEALTH STUDY  - 1 week left to provide your comments.Youcan find the Metrolinx Health Study at the following link: http://www.gotransit.com/gts/en/monitoring/hhmp.aspx.  The site is laid out with 6 "tabs" to walk through what the presentation would look like and the last tab gives you opportunity to submit your comments. Public comment period is only till Monday, July 4. If you email your comments to Metrolinx, please forward us a copy at info@cleantrain.ca.

REMEMBER to ask Metrolinx about NOISE pollution and vibrations. These are important human health concerns. Those of you living close to the tracks know that newer (Tier 2) GO locomotives are much noisier than the older locomotives, and we are concerned that Tier 4 will be even WORSE. Their idea of "mitigation" is a  20-foot wall. How would you feel about an oppressive, intimidating concrete wall cutting your neighbourhood in half? And what’s worse, this wall would NOT help those living on the 3rd floor or higher; which means most condo owners would be out of luck! So PUSH them about this at the meetings. If you don’t feel that a giant wall is an adequate solution, then DO NOT settle for it.

Remember, public comment period is only till Monday, July 4. If you email your comments to Metrolinx, please forward us a copy at info@cleantrain.ca.

Elections are coming up and decisions are being made.  Speak now, or forever hold your breath… (or should we say, forever breathe stinky diesel fumes...).
