It's funny how many studies have been done to prove that high-speed rail is a great idea. These reports tend to show that people would make ample use of such a train system, that the trains would pay for themselves off in a not-unreasonable amount of time, that they could cut people's commutes, pollution and costs by a lot. All great stuff. And yet ... where are our trains?
Another report has come out in Alberta, where they've been talking about high-speed rail since the 1970s, and it confirms what every other report does. Here's hoping this one produces a little momentum. And by momentum we mean the billions of dollars needed to get this off the ground.
(There are some pretty great comments on that article. Gloves off, Canada!)
