Milton R.A.I.L. requests your participation in an important yet simple action item with focus on putting faces to the issue. Cabinet has all the statistical information in the documentation, but we are more than a statistic. We are real people who will suffer the impacts and we feel Federal Cabinet needs to connect with the community. Our aim in this initiative is to help create that connection. We also feel the 30-day delay is to gauge public response. So, let's respond!
On December 21st the Governor in Council has extended the time limit for the issuance of the Decision Statement for the Milton Logistic Hub Project by thirty (30) days. [January 21, 2021]. The Notice of Extension is available on the online Canadian Impact Assessment Registry.
February 2021, will mark Milton R.A.I.L.’s 20th anniversary in this effort to stop the proposed CN intermodal. Please know our action in this fight is not over. Milton R.A.I.L. understands Cabinet has NOT made a decision. We also acknowledge there are many rumours, and speculations circulating within the community.
Your engagement in this action item is crucial at this time, PLEASE PARTICIPATE! **𝐒𝐚𝐦𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐋𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫: See Email Letter Sample Below and Please visit our website to copy email addresses and the letter.

* * * * * To Minister Jonathan Wilkinson and all Cabinet Members,
We urgently, and respectfully request the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and Cabinet to reject the proposal of the CN Logistic Hub.
In Minister Wilkinson’s own words please, “help us build a healthier, fairer, and more resilient future that we can be proud to pass on to our children and grandchildren.”
As a community, we have stood up to stop the CN proposal for almost 20 years. If the Federal Cabinet decides to approve this proposed truck-rail hub, residents will forever be exposed to significant adverse effects on human health. That is not the future we want for Halton. The Federal Government must put the health and safety of Halton residents first. Milton and Halton's citizens must not become a tragic health statistic due to the environmental impacts of this industrial development. We ask you to protect our health and protect our future.
Those who genuinely want to leave a better place for our children, grandchildren and future generations must acknowledge the location specified by CN as inappropriate. Proceeding with the project is the wrong thing to do, as future generations will forever suffer immediate and long-term cumulative impacts.
We ask you, “What future do you picture for your families and that of future families?” The fate of Milton and Halton residents lays in your hands alone. When you decide, know we are not a statistic; we are real people looking for your help and protection for our health and future.
For the first time in Canadian history, a Federal Review Panel determined that a project could have significant adverse effects on human health. Now, the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and his Cabinet will determine our fate. We will remember, and future generations will remember the decision made for Milton and Halton Region. Your decision will become your legacy. Rejecting approval of the CN Logistic Hub will help create a safe and healthy environment.
We strongly urge the Minister of Environment and Climate Change and his Cabinet colleagues to reject this proposal, and put the health of Canadians first.
This is my family, and I want to pass on to them a healthier, fairer and more resilient future, just as you do for your family. We are real people who will suffer severe health impacts from this hub if built. Protect our lives and our future! Reject approval of the CN Hub and put the health of citizens first.
This initiative has been a big part of my life and that of my family. My children grew up watching the group activities and meetings, as they grew they also participated. As adults they know how important this issue is, and how critical it is to protect the health of all communities, not only Milton and Halton Region but also those across Canada!
