The Minister of Transport, the Honourable Omar Alghabra, announced proposed amendments to the Transportation Information Regulations to collect new freight rail information to enhance the transparency and competitiveness of the freight rail system. The amendments would require class 1 rail carriers to report to Transport Canada on waybill, traffic, and service and performance information, for the benefit of all rail users. A 60-day public consultation period follows the publication of the proposed amendments in Canada Gazette, Part I.
