In late October, Minister of Transport Alghabra released the final report of the National Supply Chain Task Force, entitled “Action, Collaboration, Transformation”. It noted that there are longstanding structural and systemic weaknesses in Canada’s transportation supply chain and identified immediate and long-term solutions.

Transport Action Ontario and Transport Action Canada have written the Minister to endorse the report as a valid critique and solid base from which to act. We recommended more detail in several areas:

  • Modal Shift
  • Preservation and reinstatement of strategic Canadian rail corridors
  • Removal of supply chain bottlenecks
  • Technology solutions
  • Enhanced trade corridor – Montreal to Windsor
