OTTAWA — The Trudeau government is putting pressure on Canada’s two major railways to clear a growing backlog of grain shipments that is undermining the country’s reputation as a reliable exporter and putting farmers in a cash-flow crunch.
Transport Minister Marc Garneau and Agriculture Minister Lawrence MacAulay have written jointly to Canadian National and Canadian Pacific to express their “serious concerns” about the failure of the railways to meet the expectations of shippers and customers over the winter.
