ENGLISH

Whereas for the past 15 years, the Hull Chelsea Wakefield Steam Train has proven beyond doubt that it is a motor of the economy and a major benefit to the Outaouais:

- The Steam Train brings 55,000 tourists who spend more than $10,000,000 annually in our region
- It provides package tours, investment, employment and tax revenue.
- The train brings tourists and visitors to the businesses of Wakefield.
- It supports the hotels, restaurants and tourist businesses of Gatineau.
- At no cost, the Steam Train right-of-way provides access to the Chelsea river front for walking in the summer and skiing in the winter.

Wheras the Steam Train has become a charming and historical emblem of the region and tourist business is down as much as 40\% in the Outaouais without the train.

We, the undersigned citizens of the Outaouais urgently request the municipal, provincial and federal politicians of our region to work together to ensure that the Steam Train is put back on the tracks as quickly as possible with all the conditions necessary to ensure that it continues as a long term, effective, tourist operation, re-starting train service during this SUMMER of 2008.
