I have never flown them out east....just know that a few of the flights I have taken to Ottawa were continuing on from there to Halifax or Moncton.I think that most of them are, but there are (or maybe were) a number routed via Montreal. I've stopped there at least twice flying out east.
As luck would have it, as I sit here waiting for my AC flight to Montreal, Porter announces boarding for flight 463 with service to Montreal, Halifax and St John's!I think that most of them are, but there are (or maybe were) a number routed via Montreal. I've stopped there at least twice flying out east.
I'd like what you're smoking.Unlike the HSR proposal to London, an Tor/Ott/Mon HSR line would be totally an Ottawa problem and would rely 100% on Ottawa funding it as Quebec and QP wouldn't contribute a cent nor should they.

I think it will. Try travelling between Toronto and Waterloo on Sunday night via GO Transit at Sqaure One and you will see how long the line is to board the double decker bus for Waterloo. A few times I've seen standing room only. The demand for high speed service between Toronto and KW is there and Highway 401 can only take so mich.So who here honestly thinks this will actually get built?
High speed rail for the Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal corridor? Probably not in my lifetime sadly.Hill: Even Russia has high-speed train travel. Why don't we?

Anyone who has read about the gulags knows that Soviet Russia was expert atAuthoritarians have been winning over support with shiny trains for over a century at least.
We all have to go through our cycle of optimism, hope and crushing disappointment before we come to terms with the fact that public transport, especially inter-city rail is just not important to Canadians. There will always be some other priority on which to spend before VIA.And people wonder why I just don't believe the current crap coming out of VIA Rail. Been there, bought the ticket!
