Re: Canadian grain in the USA?

I cant find anything specially about supplying Canadian wheat to the mills in Minneapolis but vast quantities of Canadian wheat were shipped by rail through the USA for export from US ports including New York, Boston, Portland Maine, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Norfolk Virginia.
 
Similarly US grain travelled by rail and was exported via Canadian ports such as Montreal, Quebec, St. John and Halifax.
For example, during five crop years (1922-23 to 1926-27) an average of 135 million bushels of Canadian grains annually were exported from US ports against 53 million bushels of American grains were handled through Canadian ports.
