This paper recalls the changes in the National Transportation Act of 1967, which must be superseded by legislation regulating the key items of the transport rate structure. These changes should not place regional interest above Canada's international trading objectives. Over the next two decades, the federal and other levels of government must be involved in investment decisions about the nature and capacity of Canada's logistical network. This probably means a reordering of priorities and a reassessment of technological developments such as STOL, turbotrains, and other experimental forms of transport. More emphasis on technology related to the efficient movement of bulk commodities should have first place. It is evident, according to the author, that the system of Canadian transportation and its related facilities are severely over-administered. /TRRL/
