July 31, 2012
The summer of 2012 has been a time of renewal for the Clean Train Coalition. At a general meeting of members and supporters on July 18th, a number of important decisions were made, including the critical step of incorporating as a non-profit organization.
An interim Board of Directors was acclaimed with a mandate to adopt by-laws and to convene a first annual general meeting within six months. The meeting also instructed the new board to give consideration to all legal options that might be available as part of the ongoing campaign to stop diesel trains and to go electric.
The new Board will be developing a fundraising and education campaign for September to support any legal action that may be underway.
