Canada to pony up more federal dollars for rail security, infrastructure improvements



The Canadian government recently approved a budget that includes funds to increase capacity for commuter and short-line railroads, and West Coast ports.

The budget will provide $95 million to improve passenger-rail security; $2 billion during the next four years for Canada’s Strategic Infrastructure Fund; $591 million during the next eight years for the Pacific Gateway; and $370 million during the next two years in tax credit savings for urban transit users.
