Canadian agricultural organizations have proposed amendments to the federal transportation modernization act even as they urge swift passage and royal assent.
The amendments, developed through the Crop Logistics Working Group, were presented to the House standing committee on transportation last week. The committee reconvened a week before Parliament’s regular sitting to hold hearings on Bill C-49.
Cereals Canada chief executive officer Cam Dahl told the committee that the nine technical amendments would improve railway accountability and transparency.
