Canadian surface transportation policy is moving in the right direction-but is it moving fast enough to allow domestic industries to compete with rival industries abroad? This book looks at rail, port, and urban transport policy and suggests that government must continue with its program of privatizing transportation services. Government must also restrain its urge to invest in risky, high-cost ventures such as high-speed trains.

The essays that come to these conclusions are thoughtful examinations by Canadian transport scholars of the advantages and disadvantages of privatization and deregulation and make a timely contribution to this often neglected aspect of Canadian public policy.
