Media Advisory - New Report on Northwest Passage Will Pour Cold Water on Arctic Shipping - But Some Hopes Remain

CALGARY, May 16, 2016 /CNW/ - On Tuesday May 17th, The School of Public Policy will release a major new report on the viability of shipping via the Arctic and Northwest Passage.  The paper will provide a reality check to those who have hyped northern seaway routes as a way for Canada to rapidly expand markets, and shipping market share.

However, the report will also offer some reasoned possibilities for exploitation of some Northern shipping capacity.  This report is a major step forward in understanding some of the realities Canada faces as it seeks to expand trade and exports to non-traditional markets. 

The author is available from Victoria for interviews.
