McNeil government needs to commit to CB Rail

May 1, 2015

NDP Transportation critic Sterling Belliveau says the McNeil government needs to publicly commit to the Cape Breton rail Line. He says residents shouldn’t be left in the dark about whether or not the financial assistance will be provided to maintain a valuable transportation link.

“When I asked the Minister of Transportation this question in the legislature, two days in a row, he would not say if a subsidy would be made available,” said Belliveau. “This is about the future of Cape Breton. The government needs to be open and transparent about the steps they are willing to take. Thus far, that has not been the case.”
