Would it be too much to read something in the fact newly-selected Conservative leader Stephen Harper actually took a train (Via Rail, or a private charter) from Toronto to Ottawa on the weekend?
Harper gave a much-publicized scrum at Toronto Union Station yesterday, and I also saw a photo somewhere of him being greeted at Ottawa Station too.
Maybe he was just trying to save a few hundred dallars -- MPs get to ride Via free, right?

They USED to, that perk was taken away a few years ago.....just a couple of years after Air Canada stopped flying them for free.
