Grain And Feed Association Wants Canadian Pacific To Honor Committments

South Dakota Grain and Feed Association directors are applauding Governor Daugaard’s efforts to insure that the pending sale of the CPRS line through the state be in the best interest of South Dakota’s economy.  Grain and Feed Association President Jerry Cope says it’s important Canadian Pacific Railway live up to its commitments they agreed to when they asked to purchase the DM and E line.

Cope says Canadian Pacific also agreed to bring the line up to Class 3 standards as well as invest $ 300 million in track upgrades.

He says it’s critical that Canadian Pacific continue providing service that the DME had established via rail hubs and gateway connections in Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City and Gulf export facilities for access to markets beyond South Dakota.

Cope says his group will continue to work with the Governor in monitoring the pending sale and weighing in on the process.
