The FILM, as presented by Dr. Linda Savory at the University of Victoria, on Thursday 6 June 2013 at 7 pm, was well attended and appreciated.
"De-Railed: The National Dream" is a 70 minute documentary by independent film-maker, Dan Nystedt, that examines the crumbling state of the Canadian railway system. In light of the current negotiations to re-start VIA Rail's E&N service, this film screening was very timely.
A 4 minute trailer for the film can be viewed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1tdJ6q7jYg
