Chamber of commerce president Garry F. Douglas agreed, noting though a governmental border separates the two countries, there is little else that does.
"What's good for Quebec is good for New York and what's good for New York is good for Quebec," said Douglas. "We are one economy, we have one future and the boat will float higher or lower as the boat floats for both of us."
The chamber of commerce will host a discussion on high-speed rail at its offices on State Route 9 Wednesday, Dec. 9, beginning at noon.
