MONTREAL, May 31 /CNW Telbec/ - VIA Rail Canada wishes to advise travellers that regular service between Montreal and Gaspé has resumed this morning, Monday, May 31, 2010.

While the rail line closure was outside VIA's control, VIA nonetheless apologizes for any inconvenience caused by this disruption.
