Have you ever wanted to ride the train down to Victoria? If you have a business do you think it would be cheaper to truck it or go by freight rail?
These are good questions to ask in a time when highway traffic on the Island is only getting more and more congested. Unfortunately, there is only one company that runs the rails and they can set the price – CN. Local Mid Island business owners have seen their rail rates increase by over 25% just since last year. Is there any other option other than trucking?
Time to think about our local highways and the increase in congestion of truck traffic and the lack of fare priced passenger rail transportation on mid Vancouver Island. Take your opinions to the Federal Ministry of Transportation.
