Upcoming talks could lead to 2nd Amtrak run to B.C.
Just a short update on a story covered here more than once.
Officials from Washington’s DOT and Canadian customs will meet in Canada in two or three weeks to discuss the issue.
It is all very vague. What the story does not say is that if an airline already operating between YVR and Seattle were to add an extra flight to an existing service it would not be asked pay this fee. For reasons known only to the Canadian bureaucrats, an extra train is a “new service” but an extra plane or bus is not.
