Can they build it in time?

Every once in a while the subject comes up of a high speed rail line between Edmonton and Calgary. Then it fades away, only to crop up again every 10 years or so.

This time, something even more exciting - and plausible, has come up - commuter train service between Calgary and outlying communities like Airdrie, Cochrane, Okotoks and High River. This is a much more viable idea because the infrastructure is more or less already there and let's face it, the feeder roads into our fair city are at capacity already.

I hope this is something we don't just study for the next 10 years and actually do what's necessary to make it happen.
