Re: Train whistles should keep blowing in Aurora, traffic analyst advises, April 23, 2022; 2-way all-day service coming for local GO Train riders, April 21, 2022.

All day trains — all day train whistles!

Like a not-so-funny good news/bad news story! While it's great to be looking forward enhanced and faster service in Aurora, why would our local politicians decide this is the time to DO NOTHING about the noise that intrudes on our otherwise quiet neighbourhoods? This makes no sense!

Let's make this an election issue - perhaps then politicians will listen, if they can hear over the train whistles!
