Slow movement of export grain led off debate in the Saskatchewan legislature Thursday.
NDP agriculture critic Carla Beck says disappointing grain movement has prompted a call for Ottawa to take immediate steps to get the grain trains running again on schedule.
She supports a call for the senate to quickly pass Bill C-49 on grain transportation.
She says more needs to be done, especially in areas of joint running rights.
She wants the SaskParty to sign a joint letter to Ottawa, seeking more action.
Premier Scott Moe says he has raised the grain movement issue with Prime Minister Trudeau and the railways.
He says the railways have made all sorts of assurances and he will hold their feet to the fire on the issue.
He says the province will continue to push for passage of bill C-49, grain transportation legislation, with better interswitching and volume-based regulations.
