Hon. Jean Corbeil (Minister of Transport):

Madam Speaker, both railway companies have been experiencing many losses over the last few years. I think we should commend both railway companies for having addressed the system to rationalize their operations in order to make sure that there will be rail transportation over the years.

They are utilizing the disposition of the legislation and addressing themselves to the NTA to have the right to abandonment. The NTA is hearing presentations like the member has made. I think it is a very democratic process. At the end of the day it will make the decision. Even when it makes the decision it is not abandonment immediately. It has to be reviewed by the Department of Transport, so I think the process is following its due course.
