VIA Rail extends suspension of the Canadian route

MONTREAL — In response to continued travel limitations due to COVID-19, VIA Rail Canada has extended the suspension of operations of the Canadian, which runs service between Toronto and Vancouver, until June 1, 2020.

The Prince Rupert-Prince George-Jasper service will also remain suspended until June 1, 2020 due to continued infrastructure issues.
