Transport Action Ontario and our affiliate, the Northern and Eastern Ontario Rail Network (NEORN) have jointly issued a media release decrying the extremely poor on-time performance of the Canadian. Data shows that the Canadian from Vancouver to Toronto was on schedule only once between March 2 and June 22, 2017. The blame is placed on CN, which is disregarding its contractual agreement to efficiently handle all VIA passenger trains on its lines.
The groups are calling on Transport Minister Marc Garneau to resolve the situation.
