Statement by Karen Proud, President and CEO of Fertilizer Canada
Fertilizer Canada supports Transport Canada’s amendments to the Transportation Information Regulations, which will provide greater transparency for rail service and better data to inform government and industry decision-making. Fertilizer Canada provided recommendations throughout the consultation process, and we are pleased to see these amendments finalized.
This is a positive step in strengthening Canada’s supply chains, however, this does not address the critical issue of disruptions, including labour and jurisdictional issues. To ensure Canada remains to be seen as a reliable trading partner and Canadians have access to reliable, economically priced goods the government must continue to expeditiously implement other supply chain initiatives, including the recommendations from the Final Report of the National Supply Chain Task Force.
