Diesel vs Electric train fight goes to court
A group opposed to diesel trains on the planned link between Pearson Airport-Union rail link will be in court on Monday.
The Clean Train Coalition will present arguments in support of its application for a judicial review of a decision by Metrolinx to use diesel trains rather than electric ones.
An NDP private member's bill to make the switch was up for 2nd reading when the Ontario legislature was prorogued.
The Air-Rail Link is supposed to be done in time for the Pan Am Games in 2015.
