Mr. Speaker, they say the only constant is change, but when it comes to the high-frequency train, change is a very long time coming.
Thousands of people from Trois-Rivières have signed the petition urging the Minister of Transport to take action and make a decision about the high-frequency train proposal. I would like to read the last line of the petition, which I think is crystal clear:
We, the undersigned, call on the Minister of Transport...to take the interests of the people of Trois-Rivières into account and invest in undertaking construction of the high-frequency train project in 2018.
I just want to point out that my constituents have been waiting 25 years for the passenger train to return.
