BMI View: Road freight will once again lead the way in terms of y-o-y growth in the Canadian freight mixin 2016, a scenario we envisage to remain the same over our medium-term forecast period. Canada willonce more trade primarily with the US and signs of economic recovery in the US should have a positiveeffect on demand for the country's goods, while second to the US is China, whose slowdown in growth iscause for slight concern for freighters in Canada.
