The Green Party have released their election platform titled, "Honest. Ethical. Caring. Leadership". Included in the document is a pledge to:
- Enact the Via Rail Act to implement a passenger rail transportation policy. Invest $600 million in 2020-21, rising to $720 million by 2023 to develop regional rail networks and strengthen rail connections between regions." - This is a solid idea that has been presented before but never acted on. Canada's VIA Rail passenger rail system has no legislation to support its existence.
- Build high-speed rail in the Toronto-Ottawa-Quebec City triangle - Doug Fords Ontario government have stopped this from happening. Decades of studies sit on the shelf.
- Build high-speed rail in the Calgary-Edmonton corridor. Great idea but again nobody has acted on the previous studies recommendations.
