This is not the Canadian Government.

It is a partition asking the Government of Quebec to work with the Federal Government (Ottawa) in restoring service to Gaspe. Here's a rough translation:

We, the undersigned, ask the Government of Quebec that has a joint strategy with the federal government so that the passenger train is back in Gaspésie

Can't see it going too far but there is always a chance

Really nothing funny about the name. It’s derived from the Mi’kmaq (First Nation) language meaning Lands End……which basically describes what a peninsula is and where the town is situated.

The Quebec government has decided to fund the restoration of rail service Gaspe. The restoration will be in three phases. The first phase of the track improvements will begin this summer. The second phase will follow the first phase quickly in order b to provide train service to a new cement plant on the rail line.
