"Green" electrified trains that run often, on time, and on dedicated tracks. That future vision of train service was rolled out by VIA Rail chief commercial officer Martin Landry for about 50 people at Wednesday's talk organized by the Alexandria and District Chamber of Commerce. He hinted that an additional engine may be stopping in Alexandria, where the centennial of the station will be marked next year. More in the November 9 edition of The News.
Area residents will have a chance to learn about the future of VIA Rail when a top company official visits Alexandria November 2.
“Delivering sustainable mobility to Canadians” is the theme of the address chief commercial officer Martin Landry will deliver on behalf of president Yves Desjardins-Sicilano during the meeting that will be held at 6:30 p.m. at the Glengarry Funeral Home, 580 Main St. S., Alexandria.
Open to the general public, the get-together, which is organized by the Alexandria and District Chamber of Commerce, will also include a question and answer period, followed by a wine and cheese reception.
Here is the online version of the plug Glengarry is getting in the October 1 edition of the Ottawa Citizen.
Approximately 15 passengers were injured in a collision between a double-decker bus and a tractor trailer June 23 at about 2:30 p.m. on the Highway 401 westbound lane east of Lancaster.
Two of the injured were airlifted to hospitals.
The other 30 passengers were transported to the Williamstown arena awaiting alternate transportation.
The westbound 401 is closed in that area.
