The idea of a high-speed rail line between Edmonton and Calgary is one that historically has been slow to leave the station.

A legislative committee has been holding a series of public hearings this week on the idea with final meeting tonight in Edmonton.

In the video above, CBC's Silvana Benolich speaks to some of those who hope to get the idea back on track.
