Community groups are expressing scepticism and doubt that diesel trains scheduled to run on the Metrolinx lines will be better for health and the environment.

“It’s pointless,” said Suri Weinberg-Linsky, founding member of the Weston Community Coalition, a group that has joined with the Clean Train Coalition to fight problems with the Metrolinx system. “There’s no such thing as clean diesel. It may be cleaner than what we have now, but it’s not clean.”
