Does Canada need a ‘Northern Corridor?’

A recent paper, published by Calgary’s School of Public Policy, argues that a northern, mid-Canada infrastructure corridor–which would reach from the pacific coast all the way through Ontario’s James Bay, to Atlantic Canada–could potentially bring badly needed economic diversification and encourage private investment in Canada’s north. According to paper a Norther Corridor would establish a new “multi-modal (road, rail, pipeline, electrical transmission and communication) transportation right-of-way through Canada’s north and near north…preparing the way for privately funded and economically driven projects.”
