Canada-U.S. trade flows was the focus of a recent study performed by the Railway Association of Canada.
Director of Policy, Economic and Environmental Affairs Michael Gullo presented the findings at the Fields on Wheels Conference held earlier this month in Winnipeg.
He talked about investments being made into the network.
"The Canadian railway network is largely privately owned and so the investments that are made by railway companies on a per annum basis, they're substantive but they come from private companies and these are capital investments that are different than everyday expenditures. In Canada, this year we're on pace to invest more than $5 billion back into the Canadian owned railway network that spans both countries."
Gullo says NAFTA has been a success story for the Canadian economy, which has been shown by the amount of traffic flowing across the rail network.
