National Dream Renewed

VIA 8507 in Winnipeg

There's a new initiative called the National Dream Renewed aimed at promoting passenger rail in Canada, and rolling back the recent VIA Rail cuts. It is a joint project of the national Transport Action Canada and its regional rail groups. They are touring the country holding town hall meetings to bring the message to the people.

Next week they are in Atlantic Canada (starting in Halifax on Monday) and if you are in the area, get out and show your support! Please pre-register on their site first so they will know how many people will be attending. They had a town hall meeting in Sudbury, Ontario last week that was well attended.

Transport Action (formerly Transport 2000) does good work in all aspects of public transit but especially in rail. I have been a member for many years and I support their work. Why not join them?
