A New Start for the Union Station Revitalization.
After a lengthy hiatus following the collapse of the Union Pearson Group proposal for Union Station revitalization, the City of Toronto is restarting the process of redevelopment. Many of the studies and technical data gathered during the UPG process is valid and still current so that time will be saved in formulating the new proposal. The Public Advisory Group (PAG), chaired by Janice Etter, will play a significant role in providing citizen input to the revitalization process. The Toronto Railway Historical Association has been a supportive member of the PAG since it's inception and urges those of you with railway and transportation backgrounds and interests to apply for membership in the PAG. The City of Toronto call for PAG membership applications follows below.
Orin Krivel, President, TRHA
