Saving the Planet One Story at a Time

On September 26, 2010, Toronto’s Clean Train Coalition hosted an event in Sorauren Park – the Go Electric Music Festival.

Our GreenHeroes Street Team was lucky enough to catch a number of great local musical acts, including Lesley Pike. Lesley performed her song Silver Lining, which can also be heard in our Andrew Ference webisode.

The Clean Train Coalition is an organization working to prevent an influx of diesel trains running from Union Station to Pearson Airport.

The Coalition’s goal is to promote the installation of electric trains, reducing air pollution in the numerous west-end neighborhoods surrounding the train line, such as Parkdale, the Junction and Weston. To learn more, please visit www.cleantrain.ca
