CALGARY, June 29 /CNW/ - Yesterday, the Canadian Transportation Agency
(CTA) announced its intent to review the hopper car maintenance compensation
embedded in the revenue entitlement for the transportation of Canadian grain.
The announcement of the review was anticipated by Canadian Pacific
(TSX/NYSE: CP) and consistent with the passage of Bill C-11. The Agency
suggested that the revenue entitlement for CP and Canadian National Railway
(CN) combined might be reduced by as much as $60 to $75 million dollars.
"We believe the CTA's suggested adjustment is overstated," said Marcella
Szel, Senior Vice President Marketing & Sales for Canadian Pacific. "Over the
next several months CP will be engaged in the formal review of the appropriate
amount of money to be embedded in the 2007- 2008 revenue cap."
CP earnings guidance for 2007 already accounts for an adjustment in
