RAIL CAPITAL--WILL THERE BE SUFFICIENT?
The planning of Canadian Pacific for future investments is increasingly related to government decisions. Among the reasons are government involvement in construction of facilities in which there is no direct means of recovering the costs from users, in provision of facilities which are provided at less than cost, in establishing policies that can impose transport demands on private sector segments unable to finance expansion, and on regional planning which can require noncompensatory services. The short- and long-range processes are briefly described, along with the predicted availability of capital.
