Sherbrooke Liberal candidate Luc Fortin is ramping up his support for a train linking Sherbrooke and Montreal by suggesting that the addition of a commercial component is likely to improve profitability.
“I have always been in favor of establishing a rail link bringing Sherbrooke and the Estrie region closer to the metropolis,” he said, “however, this project must be profitable, at least viable from a financial point of view. According to the first analysis done by experts from the Ministère des Transports, a passenger transportation does not meet this objective.” See full story in the Tuesday, September 11 edition of The Record.
