Calgary, November 15: Premier Danielle Smith says she’d like to see Calgary work with the province – and potentially private industry – to explore the creation of a rail link between the city and Canmore/Banff.
She made the suggestion in a statement released on Tuesday, in which she also asked Calgary councillors to consider expanding the city’s CTrain network to the airport.
Smith says the creation of a rail link between Calgary and Canmore/Banff would benefit visitors, Calgarians and all Albertans in accessing “one of the world’s greatest natural wonders.”
This morning, I sent a letter to #YYC Mayor @JyotiGondek to discuss expanding Calgary’s C-Train network to provide new service to the airport and also the creation of an an additional regional rail line to Banff.
