Representatives of the Transport Action family of NGOs met with Transport Canada in September to review several matters relating to passenger and freight rail in Canada. This included discussion on Transport Canada’s due diligence review of VIA Rail’s High Frequency Rail (HFR) proposal for the Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto triangle.
We were pleased to hear that Transport Canada would welcome submissions on alternatives to the HFR plan. Accordingly, we have submitted our report on the High Performance Rail (HPR) Option prepared in March, 2016. That report can be found elsewhere on this website.
A copy of our cover letter, describing the option in summary form can be found here tao-tupper-hpr-2016-11 :
