OTTAWA, Ont. – Canada and the U.S. have inked a Momorandum of Cooperation to collaborate on everything from border strategies to intelligent transportation systems.
“The increasing amount of traffic from trade and tourism between Canada and the United States is creating delays at our shared border and this has a negative impact on both of our economies,” said Transport Minister David Collenette. “By collaborating with our U.S. counterparts on matters of concern – such as intelligent transportation systems and common border/corridor strategies – we will improve our ability to understand, plan and develop a more modern transportation system.”
The memorandum covers the development of common border and corridor strategies that “are of mutual interest”; sharing information on such things as intermodal issues; developing standards for intelligent transportation systems; and promoting more “high-level” communication between Transport Canada and the U.S. Department of Transportation.
