As a result, Algoma Central Railway passenger rail service between Sault Ste. Marie and Hearst will cease to exist as of Monday, March 31, 2014.
There are a number of properties, including privates cottages, hunting and fishing lodges and other tourist destinations, along that stretch that can only be accessed by rail.
The Coalition for Algoma Passenger Trains (CAPT) is seeking assistance in having the decision to discontinue this rail service reversed and requests that public supporters assist by submitting letters of support to both Sault Ste. Marie MP Bryan Hayes (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Algoma-Manitoulin-Kapuskasing MP Carol Hughes (email@example.com).
CAPT asks that any communication on this matter submitted to MPs Hayes and Hughes be copied to CAPT via firstname.lastname@example.org
