News Updated: (February 26, 2020)

From CN Rail:

Given the rapidly evolving situation, here is the latest status of the illegal rail blockades on the CN rail network.

In eastern Canada, the illegal blockade in Tyendinaga, ON, east of Belleville, ON is in the process of being cleared. We are working on resuming operations on this part of our network.

In western Canada, our recovery plan continues. We are working relentlessly to return to the level of service you are accustomed to across the entire Western region as quickly as possible.

Due to the unpredictability of the situation on our network, we are monitoring matters very closely and continue to adjust our operations to safely serve customers as best we can in the face of these challenges.

We would like to thank you for your patience and support during these difficult times. We would also like to thank supply chain partners, our rail partners, industry associations and local chambers of commerce for their support. Railways in North America regularly cooperate with one another during unforeseen interruptions to their networks to ensure that critical goods are delivered to customers and communities that they serve. 

We will be communicating as soon as information is available concerning this rapidly evolving situation.

Should you require any further information please contact your Account Manager or Customer Service Representative.

Thank you,

CN


News Updated: (February 20, 2020)

From CN Rail:

We would like to update you on the status of the illegal blockades on our rail network.

A new illegal blockade has been set up on our mainline in Saint Lambert, QC approximately 13 KM east of Montreal, QC. The blockade is affecting the movement of goods between Montreal, QC and Halifax, NS, as well as passenger and commuter traffic. This illegal blockade is unrelated to CN's activities. We will be taking the necessary legal actions under the circumstances.

The illegal blockade in Spruce Grove, AB, west of Edmonton, AB has ended however; the illegal blockade in Tyendinaga, ON, east of Belleville, ON, is ongoing and now into its 13th day.  

We would like to thank you for your patience and support during this difficult time. We would also like to thank all the industry associations and our supply chain partners for their support.  
 
Should you require any further information please contact your Account Manager or Customer Service Representative. 

Thank you, 
CN


CN Update: Progressive Shutdown Of Eastern Canadian Network

CN announced yesterday that it has been forced to initiate a progressive shutdown of its operations in Eastern Canada. This will include stopping and securing all trans-continental trains across its Canadian network and may soon lead to temporary layoffs within the company’s Eastern Canadian operational staff.
 
CN sought and obtained court orders and requested the assistance of enforcement agencies to end the blockades in Ontario, Manitoba [a short-lived blockade on CN's main line in Headingley, about 14 km west of Winnipeg] and British Columbia. While the blockades have come to an end in Manitoba and may be ending imminently in B.C., the orders of the court in Ontario have yet to be enforced and continue to be ignored.
 
More than 400 trains have been cancelled since the blockades began.
 
CN encourages stakeholders to contact their government representatives to explain how these blockades impact their businesses, employees and customers.
 
From CN Rail Yesterday:
 
We would like to update you on the status of the illegal rail blockades on our network. In addition to our last update we would like to confirm that the illegal blockade in British Columbia has come to an end. We are working on resuming operations as part of our recovery plan. 
    
Should you require any further information please contact your Account Manager or Customer Service Representative. 

Thank you,
