Paul Langan Talking High Speed Rail in Ottawa

Paul Langan

Paul been doing passenger rail advocacy for over 25 years. In 2008, he decided to focus on high speed rail as there was a definite cap in knowledge in Canada on the subject.

His purpose was simple. It was to educate Canadians on the benefits of high speed rail by setting up an educational online resource centre. He wanted to ensure that all people had access to the multitude of Canadian studies that had been done on high speed rail in the past.

We encourage people to: contact Paul, write guest blog posts and  sign up for the HSRC e-newsletter to part of our high speed rail community.

Please use the resources on this website. If you would like him to come to your community to discuss high speed rail or do historical research, he can be contacted as per above.

Canada-USA High Speed Possibilities - Part 1 Montreal-Boston

High Speed Rail Canada - High Noon for High Speed Rail Series Canada-USA High Speed Possibilities - Part 1 Montreal-Boston Paul Langan, Founder High Speed Rail Canada http://highspeedrail.ca/ - 11/11/09 The High Speed Rail (HSR) passenger rail renewal is coming to North America the question is where will it be implemented.I would like to examine the cross border opportunities for HSR that have been put forward. Four possible passenger rail corridors connecting Canada and the USA exist. They are; Vancouver BC to Seattle WA , Windsor ON to Detroit MI , Montreal QC - New York NY and Montreal QC-Boston MA. I would like to examine the Montreal-Boston HSR proposal first. All these cross border corridors share three significant fundamental challenges. 1. A multitude of political stakeholders - The more governments that are involved the process the slower the ability to get change to occur. This is especially true between Canada and the USA where dialogue and cooperation on passenger ra

VIA Rail Canada Fights to Keep Public from Seeing their Flawed $4 Billion High Frequency Rail Business Plan

Empty Trains - VIA Rail Montreal to Quebec City - 2019 Why is VIA Rail hiding their high frequency business case and plans from the public? When VIA Rail first announced their $4 billion plan to run trains over a half-a-century-old abandoned rail line from Toronto through to Quebec City, many were shocked. What business case could VIA possibly make to the taxpayers and to the federal government?  The facts did not support reality. The simple truth is: If VIA’s high frequency rail plan was approved, it would result in trains running at speeds from the 1970s, and the trip times between Toronto and Montreal would be at least 30minutes longer than in 1970. The slow juggernaut of getting in and out of Toronto and Montreal and travelling on a remote rail line, with numerous dangerous level crossings, was hardly the answer to the problems facing VIA Rail. Former VIA Rail President, Yves Desjardins-Siciliano gave numerous diatribes in Ontario and Quebec against the idea of real high-speed rail
