Northern corridor concept moving forward
By Andrew Macklin
June 9, 2016 – The concept of a northern corridor, one that would link transportation and energy resources from coast to coast to coast, is moving ahead thanks to a preliminary report on the concept.
According to a CBC news report, the corridor would link current pipelines, railways, roadways with newly-built infrastructure that would stretch north to the Arctic Ocean and Hudson’s Bay, as well as east through northern regions of Ontario, Quebec and Labrador.
The report suggests that planning and surveying should be done before any potential financial commitments to the project are sought. It is estimated that such a project, which would make living in northern communities much more affordable, could cost upwards of $100 billion.
