There are residents and businesses that are stranded, the people need the passenger rail service to be restored now!
We will no longer accept second class treatment, you need to fund ONTARIO’S 1st FIRST NATION TRAIN just like everywhere else in Canada.
The train contributes to reconciliation through First Nation employment opportunities; it is also the only safe/reliable means of transportation into many First Nation traditional territories, including spiritually significant locations.
The Algoma Passenger Train is an essential asset to the regional economy, especially small businesses. Passenger rail is the only method of transportation to communities on the rail corridor.
It provides all-season reliable transportation to remote wilderness for residents, recreationists & tourists, including snow trains.
The passenger train also serves as an essential method of transportation to and from regional health care facilities, post-secondary and French immersion educational institutions.
There are also unique aspects to the train-in tourism corridor specifically:
• Road-less tourism
• First Nation tourism
• Francophone tourism
• Group of Seven tourism
Our government needs to take a step up NOW and service their people in the way that we all rightfully deserve!
