OTTAWA, Ont. — A recently released public opinion survey was co-sponsored by the Railway Association of Canada and therefore biased, says the CTA.

The report from the Traffic Injury Research Foundation, sponsored by the Railway Association of Canada, the Brewers of Canada and Transport Canada "is a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of the trucking industry and does absolutely nothing to promote TIRF’s stated mission to reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries,” says a press release from the CTA.
