Documentary about dirty diesel trains released

A local filmmaker has made a documentary about the struggle against diesel trains, according to InsideToronto.

“It took me six to eight months to get a handle on it, the scope, the history – it’s a full-time job to keep up with what’s going on,” he said. “That’s what the Clean Train Coalition did well. They didn’t let (Metrolinx) get away with anything. They knew their stuff. They were really good at making sure all the right stuff got out there. I have to extend a lot of credit to them.”

The filmmaker is offering screenings to interested groups. His email address is jw[at]jeffwinch.com

    The Junction Triangle in Toronto is surrounded by railway lines. Very soon those rails will bring excessive toxic diesel pollution to the neighbourhood, courtesy of the Ontario Government.

    Citizens all along the rail corridor want clean electric trains, but Premier Dalton McGuinty isn’t listening.

    With government sorely letting it down, the scrappy Junction Triangle fights on.

    But the diesel trains are coming closer and time is running out
