CN Rail Farm Advisory Council wants government to ensure reliable rail service


The CN Rail Agricultural Advisory Council is calling on government to support reliable rail service.

CN Advisory Council chair Alanna Koch of Edenwold says recent rail blockades have taken a heavy toll on farmers across Western Canada.

She says farmers need a reliable rail service because producers will be paying the price.

Koch says the blockades will cost farmers multi-millions of dollars in lost sales.

Koch says the federal government must ensure a reliable rail network and will need to provide critical port infrastructure to ensure grain export movement.
