Couillard wants fast link to Quebec City

As the cherry on the PLQ conclave cake, Philippe Couillard has announced he wants a faster transit link between Montreal and Quebec City, not light rail, possibly a monorail.

I have to totally quote ant6n’s tweet in response: “Couillard’s pet transit project unnecessarily converts Montreal’s main East/North rail link to heavy rail. Dismissed all warnings how it will make Montreal-Quebec rail link all but impossible. – Now he wants a Montreal-Quebec rail link.”

Update: ant6n sent an amendment to his tweet: “I’m noting a mistake – the conversion is to light rail. I mean the REM transit project converts the Mont Royal tunnel to light rail, making it unavailable for a heavy rail link to Quebec city.”
