Canada Lags at High-Speed Rail

Filed under: Inter-city rail — Tags: — Rick @ 12:38 pm

  Monte Paulsen, author of The Tyee series on high-speed rail, provides a précis of Canada’s efforts and lack thereof when it comes to high-speed rail. Much of the discussion will be familiar to Transport Action members. The article moves beyond Windsor-Quebec City, discussing the Edmonton-Calgary corridor, which noted high-speed rail activist Paul Langan suggests may have a better chance of achieving high-speed rail. The consortium backing this corridor is arguing that government must level the playing field with other passenger transportation modes and provide the tracks for trains to run on.   Walrus Magazine » High-Speed Trains: Off The Rails
