Please write your MPP to tell him or her that we badly need the Ontario Northland Railway, our railway, back to providing passenger service! We are also very concerned that if the freight service is bought by the CNR or CPR there would be no competition left and therefore the freight rates will go through the roof making our region even worse off than we are now to ship our goods south.

Proposal to Help save the Ontario Northland Railway I am contacting you to ask you to please write your MPP

to tell him or her that we badly need the Ontario Northland Railway, our railway, back to providing passenger service! We are also very concerned that if the freight service is bought by the CNR or CPR there would be no competition left and therefore the freight rates will go through the roof making our region even worse off than we are now to ship our goods south. If all our relatives and friends in the south, wherever they may now live, write to their MPP's as well as to the Premier's office, the politicians may take note when d business together as a complete package. Please help us in the North to maintain our means to get to the South as well as friends, relatives to get to the north...to keep our resources and goods moving to markets in a cost effective way...to allow an alternative, competitive telephone business to continue serving our friends and neighbours. Many of our seniors and handicapped citizens who require medical attention in North Bay or Toronto need the passenger service. Imagine having these people forced to travel by bus with its horrible, cramped seating and lack of comfort having to sit for 8 to 14 hours on a bus! Likewise the many people in the south who have regularly used the ONR passenger service to visit their northern friends and relatives or who wanted to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the northern route to Cochrane to visit the Polar Bear Habitat and on to Moose Factory will suffer and eventually these important tourist destinations will suffer greatly. Highway 11 is notorious for its many road closures due to accidents. Because of this,there are many cases where this highway has remained closed for over 12 hours since many sections have no alternate emergency routes. With the Liberal Leadership convention taking place on January 27th, we should make all the candidates running fully aware of the terribly negative impacts on the north because of this ONTC situation. If we swamp the new Premier with letters condemning the current fire sale of bits and pieces of the Ontario Transportation Commission business, there may be a very good chance that the new Premier may listen and do something positive. Please forward this email and this idea to all the northerners that you know and all your relatives and ask them to send it to their friends and relatives to submit to their MPPs, the Leadership Candidates and to the Premier's Office. Please use the information in this Email to create your own letter to your MPP, to all the Liberal Leadership candidates and to the Premier's Office. Thank you all very much for your support! Best regards, Sylvia Milinkovich
