CP Rail Train Strike Looms

You’re train ride tomorrow morning could hit a “snag”.

The clock is ticking towards a possible strike at Canadian Pacific Railway tonight.

About 34-hundred train operators and signalling workers represented by separate unions are set to strike at 10 p-m Eastern Time.

A walkout at the Calgary-based railway could see a shutdown of freight service and delays for commuters in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver.

A C-P Rail strike would also come at a bad time for grain farmers, whose livelihoods are already at risk after an extremely cold winter caused severe disruptions in grain shipping.
