VIA Rail cancels all trains in Canada

Via Rail suspends passenger service across Canada

Via Rail suspends passenger service across Canada

CN Rail says that means stopping all transcontinental trains across its Canadian network and it may lead to temporary layoffs for eastern Canadian staff. Those passengers who have train trips booked with VIA Rail are also scrambling to confirm refunds, a process VIA Rail believes could take up to 15 days in some cases.

More than 150 routes had been cancelled previously amid protests against the Coastal GasLink pipeline.

The prime minister called on all parties to move toward reconciliation.

"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", Mr Ruest said.

As Trudeau plans to meet with Gitxsan Simgyget, Wet'suwet'en Dini Ze' and Ts'ake ze to "engage in an ongoing dialogue" and land protectors maintain their stand against injunctions, travellers across Canada are now scrambling to find alternative travel options. It could also force Canadian oil to sell at a steeper discount, he said.

"As you know, our government has been clear that there is no more important relationship to me and to Canada than the one with Indigenous peoples", Mr Trudeau wrote.

Along with rail blockades, protesters have blocked politicians in British Columbia from entering the Provincial Legislature and recently blocked Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland from entering a Halifax City Hall until she was eventually aided by Halifax police.

The Coastal GasLink pipeline is a 670km (416 miles) pipeline that would ship natural gas from north-eastern part of the province to the coast.

The British Columbia government appoints former New Democrat MP Nathan Cullen as a provincial liaison with Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs in the LNG pipeline dispute.

Coastal GasLink said it has reached deals with 20 elected indigenous councils along the route to move ahead with construction, including some Wet'suwet'en councils. The Wet'suwet'en hereditary governance system predates confederation and they are still here today.

Without their consent, the project can not be built, they say, and they've repeatedly gone to court to stop it - without success.

Groups including Grain Growers of Canada, Forest Products Association of Canada and the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters have said rail delays caused by the blockades are hurting their members and the economy. Vancouver Police arrested more than 50 people this week enforcing an injunction order against people blocking access to Vancouver area ports.
