From the Clean Train Coalition website:

Saturday September 26 8:30 AM – 4 PM


Starts in Weston, ends on Queen Street West

Main Rally at Sorauren Park, 1 PM

Plan now to hop on board the Human Train to send a message to Premier McGuinty that he must act now to scrap plans to run hundreds of polluting diesel trains a day through our neighbourhoods, and direct Metrolinx to use only clean, quiet electric trains for any expansion of rail traffic along the Georgetown corridor.

The Route of the Human Train

  • The Human Train will get rolling in Weston at 8:30 am with “Whistle Stops” in a number of communities along the way.
  • People will gather in Sorauren Park at 1:00pm to welcome the Human Train for the Main Rally of the day! 
  • At 2:30, the Human Train will leave Sorauren Park for a parade through Queen West.
  • Further details on times and locations will be coming soon!

We urge everyone from every neighbourhood to join us at SORAUREN PARK for the main event at 1:00 pm. We will all gather together in the largest park beside the railway tracks to demonstrate the strength of our demand that the provincial government ensure that only clean public transit is built in our city.
