The following message was issued by the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) on Friday, February 21, 2020:
"CN Blockades Update
The court has issued an injunction for the blockade in Saint Lambert, Que., east of Montreal, which has been served on the protesters. CN continues to work with local enforcement agencies to enforce the orders.
The blockade in Tyendinaga, Ont., east of Belleville, is ongoing.
In the east, CN has adjusted its operations, but can run only limited service in the impacted areas until the blockades end.
With the end to the blockade west of Edmonton, CN's Western Canada service levels are improving daily."
We are continuing to monitor this situation and will advise accordingly.
