The Green Party Whistle Stop Tour is leaving Vancouver today to cross the country by train – making Elizabeth May the first party leader to do so since Dief the Chief.


The train will be here in Winnipeg on Tuesday, stopping from 11:20am to 12:25pm. Elizabeth May will make a speech and appear with all the Green Candidates from Winnipeg.

But, a word of caution. VIA is an accronym. It stands for Very Inaccurate Arrivals. We’ll just hope that it will work out, but if it doesn’t then this highlights the poor qulaity of our rail network in Canada. We’re miles behind Germany, Japan, France, and even China when it comes to high-speed, reliable rail networks. As they develop their high-speed systems continues, why are we not planning similar systems, particularly in the Windsor-Quebec City corridor?
