Roundtable on commodity supply chain

539 supply

The Chamber of Shipping joined a roundtable hosted by the Honourable Marc Garneau, Minister of Transport, Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Natural Resources, and the Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, to discuss the transportation of commodities by rail with producers, shippers, railways, ports and provinces.
