Mr. Speaker, I think this is a simple question. Will the Conservatives make the announcement before the House rises for the summer?
The service cuts that my colleague mentioned are not the only ones. Rail service between Montreal and Halifax will be offered only two days a week in the winter, instead of the current six possible departures. The trains that serve the people of Rimouski, Rivière-du-Loup and all of eastern Quebec are being cut. Not only does this sabotage a mode of transportation that is practical, environmentally friendly, safe and historic in Canada, but it will also undermine regional economies even more.
Are these cuts just another way to force the regions to pay for the Conservatives' ideological cuts?
