In light of renewed Government of Alberta interest in evaluating the feasibility of a high speed rail line between Edmonton and Calgary (click here for more information), the AAMDC has provided Transportation Minister Wayne Drysdale with a copy of their 2010 report entitled Study of High Speed Rail Impacts on Rural Alberta.

The report, prepared in conjunction with consulting firm CPCS Transcom Limited, examines the potential impacts of an Edmonton to Calgary high speed rail line on rural areas adjacent to its corridor. The report ensures that the AAMDC is well informed of how a high speed rail line will impact the long term planning and development strategies of its members.

The AAMDC is confident that providing Minister Drysdale with the report, combined with participation at possible future stakeholder sessions, will ensure that the rural municipal perspective is considered throughout the government’s consultation process.
