Whereas the Interstate Commerce Commission, by its order dated Washington, D.C., March 8, 1938, has granted carriers operating in the United States of America certain increases in rates and charges, including international rates, so far as they are subject to the jurisdiction of the said Commission, as set out in a report of the said Commission made part of its order, and, by Special Permission No. 167170, has granted the carriers authority to publish the said rates to become effective on less than statutory notice;
And whereas the United States and Canadian carriers have made application to increase international freight rates and charges between points in Canada and points in the United States, also import and export rates between Canadian and United States ports and stations in Canada and the United States, to the extent set forth in the report of the Interstate Commerce Commission, as modified by the carriers' applications;
And whereas the applicants have also requested authority to make the said rates effective on five days' notice after the filing thereof with the Board, but not earlier than March 28, 1938, in respect of the rates referred to in the preceding paragraph hereof, as well as in respect of the rates applying on traffic carried between points in the United States through Canada;
And whereas it is deemed by the Board to be expedient in the public interest that the continuity of joint through rates from points in the United States to points in Canada, and vice versa, should be preserved, as well as to maintain port relationships on import and export traffic—
Therefore, in pursuance of the powers conferred upon it by section 325 of the Railway Act, and of all other powers possessed by the Board in that behalf,—
It is ordered:
The Board of Railway Commissioners for Canada.
