CNR allows high-schoolers to work for them too? (I don’t mean it in a derogatory way.) That’s interesting.

I guess for similar reason, it may be financially infeasible to double track in Northern Ontario. (I even have a dedicated thread for that in the Ontario Subfurom.)

Again, Canada was to blame for privatizing rail.

We'll soon begin work to extend Highway 417 to Renfrew, first replacing the intersection of Calabogie Road with an interchange!

On va prolonger l'Autoroute 417 jusqu'à Renfrew à bientôt, tout en remplaçant l'intersection du Chemin Calabogie à un échangeur d'abord!
