Ontario Moving Forward With High-Speed Rail - Environmental Assessment Starts

It is good news that the Ontario Liberal government are moving forward with high speed rail plans with the Environmental Assessment stage. There is some concern as the press release was done a Friday which is the worst time to get any publicity out of the announcement. Some cynics would say this is another HSR study to add the pile already existing in Ontario. We like to think this announcement is a positive step forward.

The high-speed rail line would improve travel options, reduce travel times and support economic development across the province.”
