VIA Bus could replace disappearing Greyhound service 17.7.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Politics in Canada This past week Greyhound Canada announced it was shutting down intercity bus service in B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The decision is to take effect in a scant three months. It denies citizens of Western Canada basic transport services, making it difficult or even impossible for people with lower incomes to travel. Reactions of outrage from working-class Canadians who depend on bus service for their livelihood and well-being were met with a firm denial of any responsibility from the Trudeau Liberals, who suggested it was a provincial problem only. Instead of ducking the question of what to do to ensure safe, affordable, reliable public transportation in Western Canada, the Ottawa Liberals need to recognize that the Greyhound decision will contribute to Canadian economic disintegration. Moving goods to people in those towns, villages and cities affected by the shutdowns -- 60 localities in B.C. alone -- will be more expensive and difficult. Following a 1917 Royal Commission, ...

Rail lines, family farms and climate change: It's back to the future 22.3.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Food & Health Aficionados of western Canadian history know the historical role that the national railroad meant to the development of this country. While for the past three decades thousands of kilometres of rail lines across the country have been abandoned, the time is here to examine this type of underdevelopment. While many knew the price of curtailing train travel was high, the folly of it all is becoming increasingly clear given climate change. Pioneers in Western Canada would tell stories of riding the train as far as the line would go and then walking the rest of the journey to where they would homestead. I remember stories of my great-uncle taking the train to Moose Jaw from Quebec in 1904, and then walking to a piece of land near what would eventually become my hometown. Once at his concession, he sent word for the rest of the family to make the same journey. Eventually, in 1913 the train arrived in the new town and it made transport of goods and people much easier. Without the promise of a ...

The bitumen hits the fan in Alberta and Ottawa as B.C. moves to restrict pipeline and rail flow 31.1.2018 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
David J. Climenhaga I'm not going to try to go all legal scholarly on you, dear readers, but I'll tell you one thing about the B.C. government's announcement yesterday on how it would control how much bitumen can flow down the pipelines and rail lines through the province and Alberta's response to it: It's about 90 per cent politics and 10 per cent law. That is to say, I don't think British Columbia's NDP-Green coalition government has much hope in the long run of succeeding with a legal defence of its plan to implement oil transportation restrictions on increases in the amount of diluted bitumen that can be shipped by rail or pipeline, despite the sincere hopes of many people on the West Coast. After all, we're talking about interprovincial trade, international trade, water and oceans, all of which are federal responsibilities under Canada's Constitution, as well as a resource that comes from Alberta, over which it would be hard for British Columbia to assert a legal argument for control. So from that ...
