Abstract: VIA rail is poised to make additional service cuts, according to Guy Chartrand, the Quebec region president of Transport 2000. Chartrand says that he has received information from VIA sources that among the cuts being planned would be that of the 'Atlantic' service between Montreal and Halifax, and the 'Chaleur' service between Montreal and Gaspe. Sherbrooke, Fredericton, and Saint John would be among the places losing train service. The cuts would be in addition to those last January, when almost half of VIA's routes were axed. VIA spokesperson Paul Raynor said the reports were "more rumours and more speculation", but didn't deny them.
