With all the transport trucks on the road, are we maximizing the ability to transport trailer loads via rail lines like we see travelling to Milton? Once upon a time you could travel all over southern Ontario via a train. My grandfather used to hop on trains to anywhere and everywhere to deliver flowers his sisters would arrange and he would canvas the countryside as a young man who had to quit school to help support the family.

They are removing entire lines all over the place including long runs from Lanark to Pembroke. Why? Instead of removing lines, are we thinking of how we can maximize their usage including trailer and commuter transport.

I understand we need solutions so let's give the powers to be as many solutions of our own as possible.
