Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, was in Washington, D.C. on May 24th to discuss common transportation priorities. He met with U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg. Transport Canada and the U.S. Department of Transportation have identified joint projects to reduce pollution from all transportation modes, such as the development of binational alternative fuel corridors and the creation of a zero-emission vehicle task force. They will also work on reducing pollution from the rail and aviation sectors, and identify green shipping corridors between our two countries. Minister Alghabra hosted a Supply Chain Roundtable with major transportation businesses and labour associations. The Co-Chairs of Canada’s Supply Chain Task Force, Jean Gattuso and Louise Yako, joined him to hear the participants’ perspectives on how to build more resilient supply chains between Canada and the U.S.
