why has Canada allowed it's "ribbon-of-rail" to become so tattered?

    RE: “De-Railed: The National Dream”

    Where can one see or acquire this film? I can only find the trailer, even though the film should have been out a while back, if I am to believe the rather sparse information I can gather here and there

    A short video has just been added to this page. Take a few minutes to view it. I know you will enjoy it, especially if you use the train, love trains, or love the Northern Ontario landscape.
