Mid-Continental Corridor, Part Deux

Good to see this article on our strategic position here in the heart of the continent. As I mentioned before, we are in a great position geographically – closer to Europe and Russia than you might otherwise think. This Free Press article goes further, exploring the very unique position we have at the heart of the rail network.

I hope that this is the start of a good dialogue on the topic.

  1. I think Kansas trumped us.

    This issue has been debated since WinnPort. Perhaps with a few hundred million from the feds something can be done.

    But yes, getting the rails streamlined out of the City with a terminal on the West side of town would help the City grow and fill the core .

  2. Hi Sigh, welcome back!

    As I mention in the first Mid-Continent piece, the real advantage for Manitoba is our proximity to Europe by way of the North. That coupled with the rail connections is the real key to our advantage in a post-icecap world.

    It is also important to note, though, that the melting of the icecaps is also a bad thing on the larger scale – but it does have implications in Manitoba that can be positive if governments take appropriate measures.
