[RE: LETTER: Move to electric railroad, instead, Dec. 13, The News]
Continuing on the benefits of an all electric railroad system, our prime minister has committed us to multi-billions of dollars including carbon tax.
If the railroad industry and Ottawa (that’s us) were to start off on a project to electrify our nations rail systems, it would improve the health of the vast majority of Canadians.
It would be a tremendous boost to our health care system and possible to more than our commitment to the Paris Accord.
We would be getting a tangible return on our investment.
It’s not as if the wheel has to be reinvented!
