Our resources can help us build a better Canada

What’s holding Canada back is a lack of adequate transportation infrastructure to get our goods to new high growth markets. Simply put, we need more rail, ports and pipelines to be able to get Canadian goods to overseas markets that are clamouring for them.

Their activities drive economic growth and support Canadian families in cities and rural areas alike, writes Perrin Beatty. The Hill Times photo: Jake Wright
