19 May 2015: Our good friends at TTCriders are using a Clean Train Colouring Competition to send a big, bold, creative and beautiful group message to our elected officials asking them to say yes to clean trains, lower fares, and more stops for the new Union Station to Pearson Airport train line.
The diesel service with only four stops and a $27.50 regular adult one-way fare starts June 6.
The student winners of the Colouring Competition will be announced June 1 at 9:45 a.m. at a special rally urging elected officials to do the right thing for our health and the environment in the lead-up to World Environment Day and Clean Air Day.
Rally For Clean Trains and Clean Air
Monday, June 1, 9:45 p.m.
Queen’s Park, Toronto, at the corner of College and University
All invited! Please rsvp firstname.lastname@example.org
Over 140 kids and over 12 schools participated in the colouring contest to say yes to clean, affordable trains with more stops. But will our elected officials listen?
SEE THE POSTERS. Please share your favourite poster or posters with your friends and fellow community members via email, Twitter, Facebook and more to tell them about the need for clean, affordable trains. Make sure to tweet @upexpress @ttcriders and www.facebook.com/ttcriders. You can also email votes for your favourite at email@example.com.
SEND A MESSAGE to all elected officials asking them for clean, affordable trains. Students at one wonderful grade 6 class all wrote persuasive letters to their MPP. Very inspiring.
