In Canada, two railway corridors were most often mentioned in the context of building a high-speed rail - from Edmonton to Calgary and from Quebec City to Windsor. The Calgary – Edmonton Corridor is a geographical region of the province of Alberta and it is its most urbanized area. It includes the entire metropolitan areas of Calgary and Edmonton and the agglomerations of Red Deer and Wetaskiwin. Measured from north to south, the region covers a distance of approximately 400 km (250 mi), inhabited by about 3 million people according to data for 2016, while the distance between the cities of Calgary and Edmonton is about 295 km or 183 miles. On the other hand, the Quebec City–Windsor Corridor is the most densely populated and heavily industrialized region of whole Canada. As its name suggests, the region extends between Quebec City in the northeast and Windsor southwest, covering a distance of about 1,150 km (710 mi). With more than 18 million people, it contains about half of the country's population and three of Canada's five largest metropolitan areas. In the video, we noted that the high-speed rail serves as a political tool for the parties, which should contribute to either becoming a part of the Government or remaining in power. Bearing in mind that the Canadian elections are scheduled for September 20, 2021, we must mention that one of the 26 Policy Resolutions proposed by the Liberals is precisely the proposal of High-Speed Rail: An Affordable And Efficient New Means Of Transportation. This proposal is in fourth place, which has a higher priority than the proposal of A Canadian Basic Income - Rethinking Canadas' Tomorrow which is in fifth place.And because of the Canadians, we hope that this will be realized in the near future. If you want to know all about these two proposed high-speed rail corridors of Canada, check out our video!
