President and Chief Executive Officer of The Railway Association of Canada (RAC) to Address the Economic Club of Canada

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 7, 2013) - Rail is the backbone of an advanced, integrated supply chain for global competitiveness. Canada's railway industry moves 70 percent of all surface goods moved. Railways move some $250 billion of goods per year in Canada alone. Two thirds of our traffic crosses a border or touches a port. Over the next decade, hundreds of major resource projects, valued at some 650 billion dollars, are planned in communities across Canada. This growth requires an efficient, safe and well capitalized rail system. What can we do to ensure that our transportation supply chain can contribute to Canada's competitiveness in the future?
