Why I Support the Save VIA Rail Campaign

As an occassional contributor to the Huffington Post online Canadian news site, I chose to use my most recent article to talk about the importance of the Save VIA Rail Campaign.

An improved rail service is imperative for alleviating traffic congestion on Canada's highways and roads. My constituents feel particularly disenfranchised because of the service reduction. It is obvious that action must be taken and we must reinvest in VIA. We should be looking at all kinds of opportunities for mass transportations.
