Last week, the federal government announced $204 million in new funding that will be divided between Via and federally-owned and operated airports.http://business.financialpost.com/2014/ ... ail-lines/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Mr. Desjardins-Siciliano said he doesn’t know exactly how much of that money will go to Via, but the funds will be used to acquire rail lines. And he plans to ask provincial and municipal governments for funding as well if they want Via to provide additional service — something Amtrak has done in the United States.
Via will consider buying tracks that other railways don’t need anymore, acquiring existing railway beds that have been abandoned, or building new tracks from scratch, he added.
