Nearly 4,000 Quebecers
have signed a petition that calls for a cross-Quebec railroad that would link
the province's Nunavik region to southern Quebec, The Montreal Gazette reports.
The Quebec government and its major financial institutions should support the
construction of a "Trans-Quebec Express" railway, which would cross
Quebec from the Gaspé to Nunavik, a huge area bordered by Hudson Bay, Hudson
Strait, Ungava Bay and Labrador, says the petition, which was tabled yesterday
at the Quebec legislature by MLA Denis Trottier.
