Via Rail Halts Service Nationwide And CN Rail Cuts Most Service Due To Pipeline Blockades

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.
