All trans-continental trains across CN Rail network are shutdown due to ongoing anti-pipeline blockades. Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau says he’ll meet Friday with his provincial and territorial counterparts, as well as representatives of national Indigenous organizations. Garneau says safe and efficient passenger and freight rail service is critical to Canada’s well-being and he’s in constant communication with both CN and CP Rail. Via Rail has also suspended passenger service across Canada.
2/2 We understand the impact this unfortunate situation has on our passengers and regret the significant inconvenience this is causing to their travel. Full refunds will be automatically processed for all cancelled trips.

As the Prime Minister said, ''The freedom of expression is an important democratic right, but these activities must respect the court decisions and the law.''
