Ford pledges to restore Northlander rail service, rebuild Highway 101

Toronto Sun: 'Ontario Progressive Conservatives are pledging to improve road and rail transportation in northern Ontario, including investing $75 million to restore the Northlander passenger rail service between Toronto and Timmins, Ont.

'Party leader Doug Ford says the Tories will also expand the formerly shuttered rail service by extending the Northlander to Cochrane, Ont., and adding a connection point to Polar Bear Express service to Moosonee, Ont.

'The Northlander rail service was cancelled in 2012 by the then Liberal government, who said at the time it was too costly to subsidize.'
