Canada’s announces funding of up to $C 5.4m ($US 3.9m) to help the rail sector weather climate change..


CANADA’s government has announced a new funding package to improve the resilience of rail infrastructure following a series of extreme weather events, including floods and fire, that impacted operation in 2021.


Canadian minister of transport, Mr. Omar Alghabra, says that up to $C 5.4m ($US 3.9m) will be made available for 20 projects across the country under the Rail Climate Change Adaptation Program, which aims to support research and development of technologies, tools, and approaches to better identify and reduce climate change risks to rail.
“Rail is one of the most efficient modes of transporting goods in Canada,” says Alghabra. “To further reduce disruption, keep our supply chains even stronger, and ensure Canadians receive affordable goods on time, we must continue to work to reduce the growing risks and impacts of climate change on Canada's rail sector.”

              Is it 5.4 million or billion?🤔 5.4 million is extremely little for such a huge country as Canada
