Canada’s railways announce new Parliamentary Rail Caucus
The Railway Association of Canada today announced the creation of a Parliamentary Rail Caucus to be chaired by Sherry Romanado, Liberal MP for Longueuil-Charles-LeMoyne, and co-chaired by Marilyn Gladu, Conservative MP for Sarnia-Lambton.
“It is an honour and privilege to be asked to chair the Parliamentary Rail Caucus,” said Ms. Romanado. “I am looking forward to working with the railway industry and parliamentarians from all sides of the aisle.”
“The rail industry is a critical part of our economy, and I look forward to co-chairing this committee,” said Ms. Gladu. “We will ensure that input from all regions of the country is part of the ongoing dialogue to ensure continued support for the safe growth of the rail sector.”
The Parliamentary Rail Caucus will encourage dialogue between railways and parliamentarians of all political stripes, and will provide a platform for discussing pressing policy issues. It will also serve to inform members of the critical role that railways play in our economy, and the potential for Canada’s green rail infrastructure to support our country’s sustainable growth. The first meeting of the Parliamentary Rail Caucus will be held on March 9th.
