Considering how I read an article about how this story is too "tame" for US TV, I am amazed that they actually reported it. Plus, they at least have an actual Canadian train, one that does run on some of the same tracks as VIA.

Silver linings, gotta find them somehow.

Oh wow, I thought I was the only one who saw that. My mom pays $50 a month for digital cable and watches only 1 channel - CNN. So while visiting her, I saw the news report on the arrests. They were showing Go Transit footage and I asked my mom "Weren't these guys trying to do something with Via?" To which my mom asked "Go Train goes to New York, doesn't it?" Forgive her, my mother hasn't taken any form of public transit since the big snow storm in 1998. You know, the one where Mel Lastman called in the army? Yeah, that one.
