MCFN receives Rail Operating Certificate and Media update

1.     CAPT sends its congratulations to Chief Jason Gauthier and Missanabie Cree First Nation for approval for ROC

CAPT sends a huge congratulations to Chief Jason Gauthier and Missanabie Cree First Nation (MCFN) for successfully being approved for their Rail Operating Certificate (ROC).  They are the very first First Nation in Ontario to receive a Rail Operating Certificate. Thank you, Chief Gauthier, for all of the hard work that you did to make this happen.  This is an important step that was required for MCFN to be able to run the Bear Train between Sault Ste. Marie and Hearst.  Now that MCFN has provided Transport Canada with a fully completed business plan and their ROC application has been approved, we urge Transport Canada to provide the required operating funding. Considering that the annual $2 million funding would result in over $48 million in regional economic benefits and $6 million in tax revenue, TC will surely see that this passenger train service has to be funded.

 

For more information please listen to this interview:
