Dalton's Dirty Diesels

In the week when the Canada Line railway opened in Vancouver, connecting the downtown to the airport, I spotted this protest poster on Dundas West in Toronto. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty is shown as the villain of the piece. Hogtown's long running saga of a railway to Pearson Airport is mired in controversy over the possible use of diesel trains for the projected service. The trains in British Columbia are electric and its seems sensible to follow suit. When will this "world class city" get its act together and provide a clean efficient train service between Pearson Airport and the downtown? Don't hold your breath.
