Fair Rail Freight Service Act (Bill C-52)

Elizabeth May: Mr. Speaker, the Green Party is in exactly the same position. We support the bill, but it is a very limited bill. It would provide the shippers of goods by freight access to an arbitration. That is what it does. It could do so much more.

I would like to ask my friend from Newton—North Delta if she does not agree. The committee might not be able to get at it because it exceeds the scope of the bill. However, this legislation could be used to leverage and push for more of a national transportation strategy that would take into account the need to move goods and people efficiently by rail.
