Everything can be built. If Japan can build theirs on earthquake prone tectonic land we can for sure build it on our flat Ontario safe as ever land. Let's cut the crap and the excuses, if there is a will it can be built.

You're probably right... the highest costs in building railroads is usually expropriation.

The province would never okay building anything like that. Why bother? It doesn't make any sense. If you're going to build a dedicated track, might as well make it high speed.
