TELL DOUG FORD AND LINDSEY PARK THAT DURHAM REGION DOESN’T NEED A NEW PLAN. WHAT WE NEED IS OUR TRAIN!
AND WE DON’T DESERVE THIS BAIT AND SWITCH TO A NEW PLAN THAT IS SIMPLY CHEAPER. OR FASTER TO BUILD. WE HAVE BEEN WAITING LONG ENOUGH!

THIS PETITION WILL BE SENT TO: (simply click on a NAME to send your own personal message now)
START BUILDING AND STOP DELAYING the APPROVED PLAN to bring GO TRAINS east to each of our communities…
We are sending a clear message to Doug Ford and his government: take your hands off our transit!
There is an existing transit plan that services the majority of Durham residents, that was approved by all levels of government and Metrolinx:
Any new plan, whatever it may be, is going to set back construction by months and maybe even years — and won’t service all of our communities.
It’s time to say NO!
Don’t let Doug Ford have his way with our trains!
