High Speed Rail along Windsor-Quebec corridor

No more studies, we should immediately begin the construction of a high-speed railway in the Windsor-Quebec City corridor. Multiple studies have already demonstrated the viability of the project which could also be linked to the U.S. high speed rail network currently under construction. Moreover, the project would also have national benefits were the contract tendered to Bombardier and steel purchased from Ontario steelworkers. It would also create short term and long-term employment, and, if electrified, could also prove environmentally beneficial while reducing commuter times in Montreal, GTA, and Ottawa were the system also used for commuters during rush hour. Such a massive infrastructure investment may prove costly in the short-term, but in the long-term could prove to revitalize the entire province as the high-speed network continues to expand facilitating cross border tourism and trade.
