Federal Government Gives VIA RAIL Money for a Study Only in New Budget

Well the Trudeau Liberal budget has continued the trend of past Conservative and Liberals governments by giving VIA Rail Canada $3.3 million over three years for an “in-depth assessment of Via Rail’s high-frequency rail proposal."

Somehow VIA Rail management thought they should be given billions of dollars for an idea. It is a reality check for the crown corporation.

This new study being done by VIA Rail will be according to our records, the 21st study done on high speed trains (although technically VIA Rail's plan is for slow trains).

Rick Mercer's classic parody on the death by study segment on his TV show needs to be viewed again after today's news.
