An open window for U.S.-Canada high-speed rail link

(The following appeared on the Albany Times-Union website on March 18, 2011.)

ALBANY, N.Y. The last time someone suggested high-speed passenger trains New York City through the Capital Region, the idea got little support south of the border.

Now, citing the Obama administration's own high-speed rail efforts, Quebec officials believe the time is right.

Quebec and Ontario are studying a high-speed rail line that would connect Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Windsor, adjacent to Detroit. Two Canadian companies, Bombardier Inc. and Canadian Pacific Railway, could play a role in that effort and any project to bring high-speed trains to the New York City route.

The full story is available on the Times-Union website.
