Last week, we wrote a letter to the Minister of Labour of Canada demanding action to avert the threatened strike at the Port of Montreal. Canada’s reputation as a reliable provider of foodstuffs is being threatened by our inability to resolve the ongoing issues at our ports and on our railways.

 

Read our letter here

 

Another strike will be disastrous for Canadian Agriculture and Canadian Farmers.  Please add your voice and tell Ottawa it is time to stop the strike before it is too late. You can call or send a letter to your MP.  You can also send a message through this website:  https://stopthestrike.ca

 

We have been patient as we have waited for over 25 months for a resolution to the dispute between the Port and its workers. It is difficult to imagine there will be a negotiated settlement. Please encourage the Government of Canada to employ every available mechanism to ensure the continuation of vital value-added container trade through the Port of Montreal.
