If it is at all viable, I want to take the train to New York with a friend this summer. We have already discussed it.

I'm not that familiar with VIA's operations outside the Montreal-Toronto corridor. Which tracks are you referring to?
Through St-Luc railyard for the Senneterre/Jonquière trains.

The project is therefore fully funded and approved.

Now, CDPQ Infra can award the contracts and start the construction. Shovels will be in the ground by the end of the year.
