(Vancouver, B.C., October 14, 2010) Mayor Gregor Robertson praised the federal government for reaching an agreement to keep a second Amtrak train running, saying it is good news for Vancouver’s economy.
“It’s great to hear the federal government stepped up and ensured that the second Amtrak train will keep operating,” said Mayor Robertson. “The Amtrak train has been a big success and has delivered tourist visits and dollars into our economy, both in Vancouver and throughout the region.
