Daily passenger trains from Seattle to Vancouver could double
From the Vancouver Province
Good news for rail travel in the Pacific North West.
Despite critics, it seems Amtrak’s Cascades passenger rail service is very popular and they are wanting to add two more returns. The [B.C.] provincial government must be embarrassed as our jet setting Premier has not shown any interest in passenger rail service, in fact detest rail altogether, as he single handedly sold BC Rail to his political cronies, without public debate and without any thought to the future.
An improved Vancouver to Seattle/Portland/Eugene Oregon passenger service will see upgrades to the BN & SF trackage in BC, including fencing the White Rock waterfront route to permit higher speeds, more double tracking and high speed switches and put pressure on the provincial and federal government to replace the century old, single track and decidedly rickety Fraser River Rail bridge, with a modern multi track structure.

Noted in passing:

Sorry -- I know this is off topic -- but I would like to share this information.
With Pakistan in the news currently, I got thinking about weather modification. About 10 years ago, there was talk about a weather modification program underway in remote Alaska, undertaken by the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy. I thought I remembered the name: the High Altitude Auroral Resonance Program. But I couldn't remember much about it, so I asked Google a general question:
"What is H.A.A.R.P.?"
and noticed a sub-heading saying "Not to be confused with H.A.R.P.".
So I looked that up too. Both research projects are heavily focused on electronic warfare (think of radar, then go way, way beyond radar) because of the ease with which this information can be used destructively. Pakistan, I wondered?
Questions in the news media revolve around "Why isn't the world rushing aid to Pakistan?" Strangely, it seems to be agreed to stand back and watch the country sink. All sorts of excuses are given: people are being asked for too much, too often. People are beginning to worry about their own survival. Or: flooding isn't as dramatic as an earthquake. Or: there's almost no way to deliver food and clean drinking water to so many, in such drastic circumstances. (I read where people were climbing trees to get out of the flood water, only to find poisonous snakes up in the treetops ahead of them!)
But nobody mentions the fact that Pakistan has repeatedly been named as the villain in the Afghanistan war.
Pakistan is said, over and over, to be the safe haven where the Taliban regroups and attacks Afghan again and again. It is also thought to be the refuge of Osama bin Laden. So isn't it a bit odd that Pakistan is struck by the worst flooding in its history? And that humanitarian aid is so reluctantly given?
Or: isn't this precisely what the H.A.A.R.P. and H.A.R.P. projects are capable of doing?
I'd rather not think what I'm thinking. I wish others would have a look at what Google can provide. Then tell us how it looks to you.
Two key major media documentaries, one by Canada's public broadcasting network CBC and the other by the History Channel, reveal the inner workings of HAARP in a most powerful way. The very well researched CBC documentary includes this key quote:
"It isn't just conspiracy theorists who are concerned about HAARP. In January of 1999, the European Union called the project a global concern and passed a resolution calling for more information on its health and environmental risks. Despite those concerns, officials at HAARP insist the project is nothing more sinister than a radio science research facility."
To view the European Union (EU) document which brings HAARP and similar electromagnetic weapons into question,click here. The actual wording at bullet point 24 in this telling document states that the EU "considers HAARP by virtue of its far-reaching impact on the environment to be a global concern and calls for its legal, ecological and ethical implications to be examined by an international independent body before any further research and testing." This reveling document further states that the EU regrets the repeated refusal of the U.S. government to send anyone to give evidence on HAARP.

"Electromagnetic weapons ... pack an invisible wallop hundreds of times more powerful than the electrical current in a lightning bolt. One can blast enemy missiles out of the sky, another could be used to blind soldiers on the battlefield, still another to control an unruly crowd by burning the surface of their skin. If detonated over a large city, an electromagnetic weapon could destroy all electronics in seconds. They all use directed energy to create a powerful electromagnetic pulse."
"Directed energy is such a powerful technology it could be used to heat the ionosphere to turn weather into a weapon of war. Imagine using a flood to destroy a city or tornadoes to decimate an approaching army in the desert. The military has spent a huge amount of time on weather modification as a concept for battle environments. If an electromagnetic pulse went off over a city, basically all the electronic things in your home would wink and go out, and they would be permanently destroyed."
For those who still doubt that such devastating secret weapons have been developed, here is an intriguing quote froman article in New Zealand's leading newspaper, the New Zealand Herald:
"Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal. United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war, it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb. Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade."
