There's a new railway idea in Canada... the Trans-Quebec Express. The idea is to have a railway run from Gaspe to Nunavut through Quebec... over 9,000 km of track.
Of course, it really isn't a new idea. The author of the site says he has been dreaming of this for over ten years. There is an article in Nunatsiaq Online stating that a petition with over 4,000 signatures was presented in Quebec's "National" Assembly.
I don't think I need to say any more about this idea. Good luck!
