Promise History

1.11.27 - “[A]n Ontario PC Government will use the Northern Ontario Heritage fund to keep the Huron Central Railway open”


In 2018, the Ontario government announced that it would commit $980,000 to keep the Huron Central Railway open. In May 2021 the company that owns the Huron Central Railway said it no longer plans to close the railway. Therefore the promise is kept.

“The Ontario government says it is spending $980,000 to keep a freight rail line running between Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury. Ross Romano, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie, made the announcement on Thursday. He says the money, from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation, will go to the Huron Central Railway for continued operations of its line.”
