Key measures would include: •New data reporting requirements for railways on rates, service and performance, to enhance system transparency; •A new mechanism, Long-Haul Interswitching, to provide captive shippers across all sectors and regions of Canada with access to a competing railway, to ensure they have options; •A definition of “adequate and suitable” rail service that confirms railways should provide shippers with the highest level of service that can reasonably be provided in the circumstances; •The ability for shippers to seek reciprocal financial penalties in their service agreements with railways, to enhance accountability; and •More accessible and timely remedies for shippers on both rates and service, to support fair negotiations. click Read More below for additional detail

This week we’re taking a closer look at merit-winning work from the Office of Institutional Advancement at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC).
A Conversation-Sparking Campaign Brochure
After launching a $50 million capital campaign, the leadership at SAIC needed a brochure that would accomplish two main goals: spark conversations and serve as a “leave-behind” for meetings with prospective donors. The piece needed to illustrate SAIC’s leadership in educating artists, designers and scholars, while also highlighting the world-renowned faculty and remaining flexible enough to include new faculty and alumni stories throughout the multi-year campaign.
What we love most about this brochure is the customization allowed for each potential donor. “This visually and tactilely engaging brochure includes a semi-transparent front pocket for story cards featuring the work of alumni, students and faculty members who benefit from donations,” says the creative team. “These cards can be produced throughout the campaign and are curated to match the individual interests of potential donors.”
