From www.viarail.ca — this appears to be a way to re-gain passenger loyalty due to the negative press from the Strike. If you had plans to book a VIA Rail trip anytime soon, this offer is too good to pass up:
“Until Wednesday, save 60% on travel to all Canadian destinations!
All aboard! Book your trip before July 29, 2009 and save big with VIA Rail. This exceptional offer is applicable for travel completed before December 14, 2009 in Economy, Business (VIA 1) or Touring (Totem) class.
