I'd love a high speed rail line linking Toronto and Montreal. I'd love one linking Halifax and Vancouver, too. But the compactness of Spain, can't be discounted because there are 10 million more people than Canada has squeezed into an area half the size of Ontario. The grid pattern of rail lines crisscrossing Spain benefits far more people compared to a single line linking Toronto and Montreal. You're asking for a very expensive transit line which will need taxpayer support way beyond the the cities being served. Vancouverites and Haligonians won't be so willing to help support some central Canadian high speed project. I can't see it happening, not in our generation.
