Finance Minister Charles Sousa would like to see the return of passenger rail service to Northern Ontario.
But as long as it's sustainable.
Sousa spoke to local media Tuesday morning before holding a pre-budget consultation meeting at Nipissing University.
“The ONTC . . . I understand the concerns that people have, we all understand even the communities in North Bay understand and in Nipissing that it's not sustainable the way it was functioning and operating,” he said.
“We had to make appropriate changes. We need to have the services and passenger rail and the carrier services to the north. I get that. I want to see that continue. We want to make certain its sustainable and I want to make certain its effective. And we will find ways to make that so.”
When asked if passenger rail service could return to Northern Ontario, Sousa responded, “I would say that is the thing that people in Northern Ontario are expecting and I would like to see that happen.”
