The Northeastern Ontario Passenger Rail Summit brought together a number of experts and guest speakers Thursday to talk about the issues and impacts surrounding passenger rail service.
It’s the first conference of its kind for the Northeastern Ontario Rail Network (NEORN), which counts the Coalition for Algoma Passenger Trains (CAPT) as one of its member organizations.
“We’ve worked hard, the committee, we’re not going to give up,” said NEORN and CAPT co-chair Howie Wilcox. “We’re going to keep going.”
At the heart of the presentations during the rail summit was the proposed ‘Northeastern Ontario Passenger Rail Loop’ which would connect northeastern Ontario.
