The first Ocean line train of 2021 will depart Halifax on August 11 and Montreal on August 15.
"As it had been done for the other VIA Rail services, the return to operation will occur progressively beginning with one weekly round trip," the company said in a press release.
"To follow and respect guidelines and recommendations from public health authorities and provincial governments, we could not provide our passengers the service and frequencies offered under normal circumstances," VIA Rail CEO Cynthia Garneau stated.
"Our objective has always been the safe resumption of the Ocean when conditions allowed it, and we could not be happier to be able to finally proceed with this gradual return to service in this region."
Thai SELECT Signature is the highest level of certification, given to restaurants that exceed all criteria. Restaurants with this certification "personify authentic Thai characteristics, serve Thai food made with quality ingredients, offer an elevated setting, and provide outstanding service."
Thai SELECT Classic, the second level of certification, is given to Thai restaurants with "excellent quality all around" that "embody authentic Thai Cuisine with considerably good service along with great value."
Thai SELECT Casual is the lowest level of certification. While these restaurants still offer authentic Thai food, they're more "on-the-go" and have limited customer service.
"The Government of Canada is taking the first steps in preparing for the procurement process to build a new train service in the Toronto to Quebec City Corridor," Transport Canada announced in a press release on Tuesday.
While there are several steps and consultations with "Indigenous groups and communities" to undertake before accepting proposals in fall 2021, the government plans to build "dedicated passenger rail tracks which would provide many key benefits to travellers."
These include, according to the government:
"shorter travel times and faster trains that would reduce average trip times between Toronto and Ottawa by up to 90 minutes;
"more reliable on-time arrival performance up to 95 percent from a current average of 67 percent;
"more direct routes with improved connectivity between cities and to other modes of transportation;
"new services to certain communities, such as Peterborough, Trois-Rivières, and Laval, and new stations in targeted locations including near Jean Lesage Airport;
"more frequent departures between cities; and"
"a cleaner travel option using electrified technology."
"High Frequency Rail in the Toronto to Quebec City Corridor is a massive transportation project with the potential to transform passenger rail service by offering faster, more reliable, more frequent, and cleaner transportation service," said Canada's Transport Minister, Omar Alghabra.
