ON: Transit Rallies to Roll into City

It will be dueling rapid-transit rallies in the core today.

Groups for and against the region's proposed light-rail transit plan will voice their concerns at the corner of King and Frederick streets in downtown Kitchener.

First up is Rally for Rails II in support of light rail, beginning at noon. About 200 supporters are expected for the one-hour rally, put on by the Tri-Cities Transport Action Group.

The newly formed Citizens for Informed Engaged Democracy, which opposes the region's current plan to bring light rail and rapid buses to the area, will stage a rally at 2:30 p.m.
