Ford Government forces cuts to Ontario Northland Polar Bear Express (PBX) passenger train - 2019-09-19
Mushkegowuk- James Bay NDP MPP, Guy Bourgouin, is calling on the Ford government to take action and reverse the recent service reduction of the Polar Bear Express (PBX) passenger train, Northeastern Ontario's main point of entrance to James Bay.
"Doug Ford's cuts to Northern Ontario has forced a reduction in the frequency of service of the Polar Bear Express train that northern families and communities depend on," Bourgouin said. "Instead of supporting northern families, the Ford Conservatives are making life harder for Northern Ontarians."
Ontario Northland, whose responsibilities fall under the Ministry of Energy, Northern Development and Mines, recently announced a reduced PBX train schedule for the fall-winter session.
