There is a 33-mile rail line in my riding between Collingwood and Barrie. CNR is considering closing this line in the very near future.
The impact on the environment and the tourism industry in this area would be horrendous. Hundreds of trucks full of grain corn supplying two very successful companies in Collingwood would make the highways in this area impassable and very dangerous to the tourist industry.
I feel it is imperative that CNR reconsider its decision of closure of this essential rail line.
