High-speed rail link between Union and Pearson on track again?

The Toronto Star reported yesterday that the province of Ontario and SNC Lavalin are discussing ways to implement the proposed high-speed rail link between Union Station and Toronto Pearson Air Terminal.

The discussion centres on how to address local residents’ concerns that the line will disrupt their neighbourhoods and offer no transit service to them.

The high-speed train would parallel GO Transit’s Georgetown line to the Malton GO Station, then follow a new 3 km spur to the airport.
