Review: Via Rail to Montreal (and back)

I’m tak­ing the train today (Jan­u­ary 14th) from Oshawa to Mon­tre­al (and back).  While we could have dri­ven (I cer­tain­ly have before) and we could have flown, the Via Busi­ness class tick­ets were cheap­er than the coach air­fare.  Add to … Con­tin­ue read­ing
