EllisDon to Lead Prairie Link High-Speed Rail Partners - Edm-RD-Cal

The new 'Expert Advisory Panel on Moving People Sustainably in the Banff Bow Valley' mentions a new rail connection from Edmonton to feed the proposed YYC-Banff rail.

 
Not really unfortunately (I hate to be that guy), but I will say that you should stay tuned as early as this week but more likely next week.
Do you have any update on this? I haven't seen anything, but maybe I missed it.
 
^ correct. It was also in the mandate letter for the Ministry of Transportation. That's very important to get required pieces in place (funding, etc.)
Thanks for clarifying, I thought it'd be related to this project. It's still nice to see though :)
 
Couldn't find a thread for the Banff-Cgy line, sorry :) But I do think they are related in some way. Once one rail project gets off the ground others will be infinitely more likely because people will see that it can be done. We need a paradigm shift in thinking away from 'rails are not profitable' to 'all forms of public transportation are not profitable but diverse methods of transportation are essential for various reasons including environment, road capacity, etc.' One successful project would go a long way to bringing this paradigm shift closer.
