Bill C-30 Passes Through Senate, Receives Royal Assent

On May 29th, Bill C-30, also known as the Fair Rail for Grain Farmers Act, finally received royal assent. Though the bill took longer to pass through parliament than initially hoped, we are happy to see this response to the grain transportation crisis become Canadian law. We were excited to work with POGA on their testimony regarding this bill, and look forward to seeing the regulatory package for the bill.
