In den letzten Tagen kommt es in Kanada zu wiederholten Protesten gegen eine Pipeline Projekt in Manitoba.

Teil des Protests sind Blockaden von CN-Strecken, dies obschon kein direkter Zusammenhang besteht

Heute hat nun CN angekündigt, den gesamten Bahnverkehr im östlichen Teil von Kanada herunterzufahren, bis die Proteste (Blockaden) beendet sind


Als Folge davon hat Viarail die Gesamteinstellung des Personenverkehrs ab heute 16.00 Uhr EST (Mitternacht CET) angekündigt

CN Initiating Progressive and Orderly Shutdown of its Eastern Canadian Network
MONTREAL, Feb. 13, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) announced today that the Company has been forced to initiate a disciplined and progressive shutdown of its operations in Eastern Canada. This will include stopping and safely securing all trans-continental trains across its Canadian network and may imminently 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 for the illegal blockades in Ontario, Manitoba, and British Columbia. While the illegal blockades have come to an end in Manitoba and may be ending imminently in British Columbia, the orders of the court in Ontario have yet to be enforced and continue to be ignored. The Company has tried to adjust its operations to serve customers in the face of these challenges, it is now left with the only remaining responsible option: progressively shutting down its Eastern Canadian operations until the illegal blockades end.
“With over 400 trains cancelled during the last week and new protests that emerged at strategic locations on our mainline, we have decided that a progressive shutdown of our Eastern Canadian operations is the responsible approach to take for the safety of our employees and the protestors,” said JJ Ruest, president and chief executive officer at CN. “This situation is regrettable for its impact on the economy and on our railroaders as these protests are unrelated to CN's activities, and beyond our control. Our shutdown will be progressive and methodical to ensure that we are well set up for recovery, which will come when the illegal blockades end completely.”
“Unfortunately, intercity Via Rail service will be discontinued across our Canadian network. However, commuter rail services, such as Metrolinx and Exo, can keep operating so long as they can do so safely. I would like to thank our customers, international supply-chain partners, and industry associations for their support to get this unprecedented ordeal resolved,” concluded Ruest.

MONTREAL, February 13, 2020 - Following a notice from the infrastructure owner, CN Rail, that they are no longer in a position to fulfill their obligations under the Train Service Agreement between VIA Rail and CN Rail, VIA Rail has no other option but to cancel all of its services on the network, effective immediately and until further notice.
Passengers are being informed that as of 4pm EST, there will be no more train departures.
Ich gehe davon aus, dass die Aktion von CN den Hauptzweck hat, maximalen Druck auf die Protestierenen sowie die Behörden auszuüben, damit die Blockaden möglichst rasch beendet werden. Denn der Schienen-Güterverkehr von CN und CP ist für die Wirtschaft von Kanada absolut essentiell.

Die Strecken von CP und kleineren "host railroads" wie der Hudson Bay Railroad sind weiterhin in Betrieb und somit auch der Betrieb auf den Strecken Sudbury - White River und The Pas - Churchill:

We started informing passengers earlier this afternoon that there will be no more train departures.

Upon infrastructure owner instructions, all VIA Rail trains currently en route will be able to reach the closest major train station.
