Associations: Trucking and dangerous goods 'under microscope' on Parliament Hill
from Canadian Shipper
The Canadian Trucking Alliance, the Manitoba Trucking Association and the Teamsters all appeared as witnesses at a hearing before the House of Commons Standing Committee on Transport into the safe transportation of dangerous goods by road. Until now the committee's focus has been taken up entirely with rail safety in the wake of the 2013 tragedy in Lac Megantic, Quebec, where 47 people died as a result of an explosion of rail tank cars hauling crude oil.
