Petition Urges Government Action On Cape Breton Rail Line
The community group fighting to save the rail line in Cape Breton is circulating a petition calling on politicians at all levels to act.
The petition urges municipal, provincial and federal leaders to give regulatory and financial support to preserve and maintain the rail infrastructure on the Island.
The Scotia Rail Development Society is hoping to get at least 10-thousand people to sign the document.
It’s available on the Society’s website as well as at local businesses, post offices and churches.
In some neighbourhoods volunteers are going door to door in an effort to collect signatures.
The U-S owners of the Point Tupper to Sydney line have been given approval to abandon it and stopped running trains on it last December.
