Bring back Via Rail to fill the void
Medicine Hat: 403-504-7116 Editor:
It was a tragic day for Western Canada when Greyhound made their announcement to cut out our bus service.
I am surprised that many private entrepreneurs haven't stepped forward to fill the gaps.
However many dropped out as they said here in Saskatchewan there was far too much red tape involved and they quickly lost interest.
My suggestion would be to renew our Via Rail service which was so rudely taken away from us about 25 years ago it Should not have ben taken away from us in the first place.
This would be a huge help and benefit to many thousands.
We just can't have a situation where so many will be stranded.
Having many short haul private carriers would not be suitable for those on long trips.
My two cents worth...
