A Paper on Freight Rates
By J. J. Frawley, Q. C., Special Counsel, Government of Alberta
‘“I didn’t originate the title of this discussion, ‘Cattlemen should be concerned with rising freight rates’ but I think it is appropriate, when one considers that since April 1st, 1948, freight rates in Canada have increased 70%. The Western farmer and rancher for some time to come must find his market outside the province, and must compete with stock grown nearer the market, so it is a simple fact that the Western shipments must absorb the freight costs.”’
