In June, 2014, Minister of Transport Lisa Raitt announced a review of the Canada Transportation Act. The Honourable David Emerson, supported by five eminent Canadians, will report back to the Minister with recommendations by the end of 2015. Initial submissions from stakeholders to the review panel were to be submitted by December 30, 2014.
Transport Action Ontario, working in concert with the other affiliates in the Transport Action family, has made a submission to the review panel. The central focus was railway-based transportation, where we have extensive collective knowledge and professional experience.
