CBC Morning North October 30, 2017 Missanabie Cree FN wants to restore Algoma's passenger train service “Funding for Algoma's passenger rail service was cut off three years ago. Now, Missanabie Cree First Nation is leading the way to bring it back. We heard more from Riley Smith who's assisting the First Nation.” http://www.cbc.ca/player/play/1084342851678
We encourage CAPT supporters to attend a consultation organized by Terry Sheehan on Friday, Nov. 3 from 1:30 to 3:30 at the Seniors Drop-In Centre at 619 Bay St. in the Main Hall, to express the need for good passenger train service to be included in any National Seniors Strategy.
