No other companies. Just Acadian.
Bad, bad day for those without a car.
The losses weren't "that" bad, they said they lost $12M since 2004. I know, no business run at a loss for long, but in this case it could have been much worse, frankly when I read the headline I assumed that it WAS worse than 12 million over 8 years.
But as mentioned, this is a Quebec company with no real ties here, so they have no qualms about pulling the plug.
Via due to their interest in central canada won't capitalize on this either. A shame, since even considering the fact that many railbeds have been turned into "trails", they still could reach a large percentage of the population. Plus it would give some badly needed traffic on the CBNS section from Truro to CB.
