Quebec City’s ambitious tramway project is back on track after the city and the Quebec government appear to have resolved differences that derailed the plan for months.

Mayor Régis Labeaume proclaimed an “understanding” on March 17 after a 75-minute meeting on Parliament Hill with Premier François Legault and ministers involved in the file.
