Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank the member for Fleetwood—Port Kells for his stellar work on the transport committee.
When railways transport goods across this country, or to international destinations, they have to do so safely. That is one of the reasons why my government is accelerating the withdrawal of certain tank cars that are considered less safe for the transportation of dangerous goods. We are retiring them years ahead of the original schedule.
Canadians know that rail safety is my number one priority. Canadians can be sure that we will deliver.
