The CEO of Winnipeg- based Silver Jeans Co. has teamed up with Toronto Blue Jays slugger José Bautista on a one- year deal to promote its new line of signature jeans called the Joey Series, which are due out this fall. Silver met the Jays’ highest- profile player last year thanks to another Winnipeg connection. Bautista’s business manager is Barry Klarberg, whose former company, Klarberg, Raiola & Associates, a New York City financial- planning firm that serves mostly athletes and entertainers, was bought in 2000 by Assante Corp., which was run by Marty Weinberg from his Portage and Main office. “( Klarberg) contacted me through some prior associations with Assante and Weinberg. I’d met him once before, 10 or 12 years ago. He told me José wanted to expand his brand into other businesses, and the fashion business keenly interested him. I was invited to a Jays game last season, met with José afterwards, and we immediately hit it off,” he said. The two discussed the similarities between the ballplayer and the company, which included neither one being an overnight success — Bautista was with four different organizations alone in 2004 — and having to work hard to make it in their chosen fields. “ He has an in- depth knowledge of the fashion industry. He enjoys clothes himself, and he also enjoys business ( having earned a business degree from a Florida college). He didn’t want to talk about himself, he wanted to talk about jeans, our distribution systems and our marketing,” he said. “ He not only designed some jeans for us, he’s the face of our men’s product.” Silver believes Bautista will help Silver Jeans boost its business in both the U. S. and Canada. “ He’s a Dominican- born, college- educated fashionisto who plays America’s game on Canada’s only baseball team. He ticked off a lot of boxes for us,” he said. — Geoff Kirbyson M ONTREAL — The ability of Canada’s transportation network to move western Canadian grain will likely be tested again in the future as higheryielding crops continue to add volume to the system, says the head of the CWB. “ I think we could see the grain production in Western Canada be on a good, steady growth path, and that means that we’re going to have to find the logistical means to get that crop from the Prairies to customers,” Ian White said before participating in Thursday’s opening of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Western farmers have grown large grain crops in the past few years, especially in the record 2013 season, when a bumper crop later prompted complaints about the shipping performance of Canada’s two major railways and resulted in intervention last year by Ottawa. Transport Minister Lisa Raitt and Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced Saturday the government wouldn’t extend the unprecedented step taken a year ago to impose minimum grain volumes, adding grain is moving adequately through the system and the new grain crop is of average size. Although the grain- shipping system is back to normal, White said the move “ focused everybody’s attention” on the need to ensure the supply chain functions well as pressures grow to deliver more grain for export. Canadian National Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway have been critical of the federal government’s decision to impose minimum shipment volumes. They moved more than 50 million tonnes of grain in 2014, exceeding the minimum volume requirement by 5.5 million tonnes. The wheat board, which is in the process of developing a privatization plan to be implemented in the next two years, is investing up to $ 200 million to buy new Great Lake ships and grain- handling terminals. The Chinese- built CWB Marquis is making its maiden voyage and will become the first vessel to pass through the seaway in 2015. A second Equinox- class vessel, costing about $ 30 million, will arrive later this year, joining other new ships being added by several companies as part of an overhaul of the Great Lakes fleet. Terrence Bowles, chief executive of St. Lawrence Seaway Management, said he expects the waterway to benefit from an improving U. S. economy and recovering Canadian manufacturing sector. Increased automobile manufacturing and construction activity should accelerate demand for steel, concrete and aggregate. And a cold winter should also mean another good year for restocking road- salt inventories, but shipments of iron ore continue to suffer from rock- bottom prices, he said. The seaway expects to handle 40 million tonnes of total cargo in 2015, the same as in 2014, but could easily handle 50 per cent more volume, he said, adding efforts to accelerate grain shipments could help. “ Demand is only going up in the world, so we think that’s a very positive development and good for the seaway for sure.” Heavy ice in the Great Lakes is causing the latest seaway opening since 1997. However, Bowles doesn’t expect the same problems that caused weeks of shipping delays early last year. — The Canadian Press Blue Jay Bautista goes Silver Higher- yield crops the new norm: CWB By Ross Marowits B_ 07_ Apr- 04- 15_ FP_ 01. indd B7 4/ 3/ 15 5: 04: 37 PM
