Blockades Update

Dear Customer,

The following excerpt is taken from a Customer Bulletin received from CN:


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.


We will continue to provide updates as they become available.
