In what is a positive step towards a return to regular service, protesters blocking Canadian National (CN) Rail lines to and from the port of Prince Rupert in British Columbia, have cleared out. The move is seen as a show of good faith, ahead of talks this Saturday, February 15, between Indigenous leaders and representatives from both provincial and federal governments. The first CN train rolled through Prince Rupert today, February 14, with another train to follow this evening and one more in the morning. For the moment, train service ramp-up is expected to be progressive.
While the blockade near Belleville, Ontario remains in place, preventing trains from reaching east coast destinations, the brief blockade in Manitoba is over.
Delmar will closely monitor this weekend’s critical meetings and provide additional updates when available.
