Grain farmers want action on railway bottleneck
from Materials Management & Distribution
A severe shortage of rail cars has left millions of tonnes of in-demand grain trapped across Western Canada and farmers warn that billions of dollars in economic activity could be lost unless the government acts soon. Representatives of the agriculture industry were in Ottawa pressuring legislators to provide relief to grain farmers unable to access the money they need for the coming growing season. A lack of rail capacity means producers can't transport last year's crop to market to pay off that season's input loans, they say.
