Clean Air Day
Today is not only the anniversary of D-Day but is also Clean Air Day in Canada. Along with the Toronto Transit Commission the residents in the city of Belleville are also now being told which days are the most opportune for them to use the transit system. The large digital signs (luminator) on the front of buses have recently begun informing people when a smog alert is in effect for the city. Accompanied with short sayings such as “Go Green, Go Transit” the local system is trying to show people that they can do their part to reduce emissions. The Government of Canada has proclaimed this week, June 3 to 9, as Environment Week. Today Burlington, Guelph and Kingston Transit offer passengers free rides. This year DRT is holding a photography contest that depicts using public transportation instead of driving a car.
