Marine Day

Mr. Speaker, Today is Marine Day. A day to celebrate Great Lakes – St. Lawrence shipping. The Chamber of Marine Commerce is here celebrating with us on Parliament Hill today. It may surprise some to learn that Great Lakes – St. Lawrence shipping contributes 227,000 well-paying jobs to Canada’s economy while moving 160 million metric tons of cargo. Annually, Great Lakes – St. Lawrence shipping brings in $35 billion in business revenue and contributes $5 billion in tax revenues. In addition to a stellar safety record this method of shipping also results in an 84% reduction in carbon emissions versus trucks and trains. In the Niagara Region, the marine industry plays an integral role in the regional economy. 40 million metric tons of cargo passes through the Welland Canal annually on over 3,000 vessels. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to congratulate all the hardworking people in this critical industry who contribute so much to the success of Canada-U.S. trade.
