SAINT JOHN, N.B. — A new group has been formed to advance transportation issues and business opportunities in southern New Brunswick, according to a report from the Telegraph-Journal.

The Saint John Port Authority, the Greater Moncton International Airport, Irving Oil Limited, Logistec Stevedoring and the Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan have all joined together to form the Southern New Brunswick Gateway Council. The council is modelled on similar bodies in Vancouver, Hamilton, Ont., and Halifax.

The New Brunswick group will explore economic opportunities stemming from the Atlantic Gateway for the area of the province from Moncton to St. Stephen through the use of road, rail, air and sea transportation routes.

The council’s founding members will hold an organizing meeting on April 4.
