The federal Minister of Transportation will meet with stakeholders who are trying to save passenger service at Algoma Central Railway. But New Democrat Carol Hughes is holding off an applauding the move for now. Hughes, of Algoma Manitoulin Kapuskasing, has been after the feds continuously to provide steady funding to ACR so jobs are saved. She says without ongoing federal support, the region from Sault Ste. Marie to Hearst will lose hundreds of jobs and millions in economic activity. Last year the feds put some money into ACR but Hughes says that was a short-term fix to address a crisis the Tories created in the first place.
