cycle act

cycling youth act out


The Otesha Project’s 2009 cycling and performing tours have just been launched We are looking for people interested in joining the tours (Ontario's is launched out of Ottawa) where you will cycle across the province to communities and perform our eco/social justice play "Reason to Dream". If you or someone you know is interested in applying to go on a tour, now is the time. Learning tours, bilingual tours, one month, two months - the possibilities are endless!

The Otesha Project is a youth-run organization that uses theatre to mobilize young people to make local and global change through their everyday consumer choices. The cycling and performing tour offers participants the chance to live in a mobile sustainable community while giving performances to high school students and community groups about how to make sustainability a part of everyday life.

Word of mouth is our most effective tool for recruiting cycling tour members. Tell your neighbors, tell your dentist, tell your school friends and coworkers.

Tell the World.
Location: All across Canada, Tours start in Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Moncton,

GO adding Hamilton train in 2009

(Hamilton Spectator)

Hamilton is getting an extra morning GO Train early in 2009.

GO Transit announced recent track improvements will allow the Toronto-bound train which leaves Oakville at 7:58 a.m. to start its run from Burlington Aldershot at 7:32 a.m. on Jan. 5.

This 12-car train will originate in Hamilton later in early 2009 when the Hamilton train layover site is finished.

The train will run as an express from Oakville to Union Station.

GO made the announcement along with other service changes including two early, ‘homebound’ trains on the Lakeshore lines, one westbound and one eastbound.

Starting Jan. 5, a new weekday westbound train will leave Union station at 3:15 p.m., operating express to Clarkson and making all stops to Burlington. A similar eastbound train will leave Union at 5:10 p.m.

These new trips are intended to relieve crowding, meeting growing ridership needs, Go Transit said in a statement.

waiting for walking

One step closer to having a car-free Valley Inn Road, from York Blvd across the wooden bridge at the mouth of Grindstone Creek, which will make a pleasant area more so by limiting traffic and allowing pedestrian and cycling access.
