Thank you. Now I'm going to jump out of the water and onto the train tracks.
The mining industry is unique in that some mines don't have any rail, and there are some places that have nothing other than rail, and those rails don't connect to anything. I'm thinking of Quebec Cartier Mining or Quebec North Shore and Labrador Railway where, if you don't get there by train, you're not getting there. Then you only have one company, so there are absolutely no alternatives. How well did that work?
Most of the competition increasing things in Bill C-49 don't really apply to those areas.
