    Renewably powered city to city transportation…cool. Let’s also connect BC hydro rich grid to Alberta wind and solar PV rich grid potential. Then we can share renewably powered electricity back and forth.

  14. To everyone in the comments section, this is ALL TOTALLY 100% being funded by a PRIVATE company, & DOES NOT involve ANY tax dollars.

    since oil prices are going to tank, and it will be to expensive to take it out of the ground, use the money from that stupid pipeline your forcing on my province and spend it on a hyperloop before the oil industry takes a hyperpoop

    I mean, sure, it looks futuristic, but nobody ever thinks these things through before they hop on the band wagon? High-speed rail is simpler.
