  • “Disappointing and startling” — Dan Mazier, Keystone Agricultural Producers, joins the show to talk about what’s happening with grain transportation on the prairies.
  • CN and CP Rail last week fulfilled less than half of the hopper car orders for grain — are we in for another grain backlog? David Przednowek, director of marketing, grain, for CN joins the show to discuss.
