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.

High Speed Rail Canada releases VIA Rail Canada, Infrastructure Bank High Frequency Rail Project Study Free Download

  Anyone who has followed former VIA Rail President, now Siemens employee, Yves Desjardins-Siciliano high-frequency rail crusade in Ontario and Quebec were left with more questions than answers. Details of the plan were scare and kept secret from the public. Yves anti high-speed rail speeches were well documented.  VIA Rail Canada's map on the alternative, high frequency rail, changed frequently and often. Claims of  improved frequencies, travel times, speeds were touted without any quality evidence to support it. High Speed Rail Canada releases this study to show just how far VIA Rail will go to keep the public in the dark about their proposed plan. This study is so  heavily redacted it is almost worthless. Why the secrets? Perhaps this high frequency rail plan was just a  pipe dream of Mr. Desjardins-Siciliano. Reminder the study is NOT about high-speed rail. Click HERE to view and download the study.  Canadians deserve better.
