Town Hall Workshop - VIA Rail Canada Town Hall Project 

Sarnia-Lambton residents are urged to let their voices be heard regarding VIA Rail’s recent service cuts at this upcoming Town Hall Workshop. 

This is an opportunity to input your views  amd suggestions regarding the future of Canada's national rail passenger service.

The meeting is the first of a Canada-wide series of Town Hall Workshops addressing recent cuts to VIA Rail’s passenger service, and gathering Canadians’ views of VIA Rail, and their suggestions on how it can be reformed to sustainably provide the rail passenger service they want and will support through their taxes and their ticket dollars.

The “National Dream Renewed:  The VIA Rail Canada Town Hall Project” is an initiative of Transport Action Canada, the country’s leading citizen transportation advocacy group, together with Transport Action Atlantic, Transport 2000 Quebec, and Transport Action Ontario. The objective is to inform and educate the Canadian public of the vast untapped economic, social, and environmental potential of Canada’s national rail passenger service, VIA Rail Canada, and to produce a blueprint for its revival and expansion.

Transportation writer and policy advisor Greg Gormick will facilitate the workshop, which will include breakout working groups and a discussion of the breakout group findings.

Please note - registration is not a requirement to attend the Town Hall Workshop!  However, assist with planning for the Workshop we ask that you register in advance if possible.
