Electric vs diesel for Pearson rail link
People in west Toronto are making another plea to the premier to scrap plans to use diesel trains for the rail link between Pearson & downtown.
The group worries diesel trains will mean noise & pollution. They held a rally Sunday, calling on Dalton McGuinty to switch to an electric rail system instead.
McGuinty believes going diesel is the only way to make sure everything is a-go for the Pan Am Games in 2015.
He has said electric trains will be put on the line eventually. But protestors don't trust Metrolinx or the government to tweak the system after the fact.
McGuinty tours the construction site of the rail link Monday.
