Full title: CN shuts down operations in Eastern Canada due to protest blockades

Quote:
CN yesterday announced it has initiated a "disciplined and progressive" shutdown of its operations in Eastern Canada until protest blockades on its lines in Ontario are removed, company officials said in a press release.

The shut down will include stopping and securing all trans-continental trains across its Canadian network, including intercity VIA Rail service. The Metrolinx and Exo commuter-rail services will not be impacted, CN officials said.

Earlier this week, protesters set up the blockades across the country in a show of solidarity for the Wet'suwet'en Nation, whose hereditary chiefs oppose the construction of a natural gas pipeline through northern British Columbia.

Since protests began, more than 400 trains have been cancelled and new protests have "emerged at strategic locations" on the railroad’s mainline, CN President and Chief Executive Officer JJ Ruest said.

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," CN officials said.

The shut down may lead to temporary layoffs within the railroad’s Eastern Canadian operational staff, officials said.

“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,” Ruest said. “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."


The leftists are shutting down your economy, putting Canadians out of work, and causing no small hardship to low income people who depend on commuter rail to get to their jobs, hospitals, and grocery stores.

Enjoy.

He says without a trace of irony.

Groper to China: "We respect the rule of law in Canada.

Groper to protestors in Canada: Fuck the law. Feel free to break it all you want.

Meanwhile, Marc Garneau, the world's most clueless ex-astronaut proclaims that the protests blocking transportation corridors are provincial responsibility. Forgetting entirely that the lines CN and VIA run on are federal jurisdiction, not provincial.

So it would appear that Groper and gang are perfectly happy to let Canada's economy take a nice hit in the name of his idiot ideology. Common sense be damned. That common sense shit is just nazi thinking.

Bull shit: CN shuts down operations in Eastern Canada due to the financial inviability and the tree-hugging-useful-idiot-army distracts attention away from the collapsing supply chains

Not really.

As I understand ir, the courts have spoken so I’m not sure what their objective is at this point. I’m all for civil disobedience and peaceful protest but you can’t protest a court decision because courts can only rule on the law as it it is written.

Unlike conservatives, I believe in the rule of law, and that the laws apply to everyone, not just the people you disagree with So it’s tough dor me to support a protest of a court decision that doesn’t really have any realistic objective.

But also I just don’t really care about the pipeline politics all that much.

:lol: :lol: :lol: The irony impairment in this one is colossal. I think you mean, "unlike Team Groper". Tell us oh great moralistic one, which law states that it's legal to block transportation corridors in protest without a permit to block said corridor. Which law states that it's okay to interfere with/disrupt the nation's economy because you're having a hissy fit?
And the truly stupid part is, people are being arrested for removing illegal barricades. Imagine that, in Canada it's apparently illegal to remove an illegal protest barricade. The cops and govt in this country are a bunch of worthless, gutless fucks when it comes to this shit. Garneau trying to pass the buck for CN and VIA onto the provinces. What a fucking shmuck.

I guess the rule of law is only important when you're trying to signal your virtue to China.

And let's take a look at your comment about the courts. May ignored a court injunction. I don't recall her being a conservative. She's just another left-wing twat who thinks she's above the law. In fact, all these protestors believe they are above the law. And Team Groper is only too willing to reinforce that sense of entitlement amongst them.

You've got to love our trust fund baby though. He got on TV yesterday in the middle of his "Gimme what I want and I'll give you lots of money tour" and rebutted Scheers assertions that the police should step in and enforce the law.

Quote:
Federal Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer called on police to enforce court orders and end the blockades, and criticized protesters as misguided activists who are damaging the economy and ignoring the wishes of elected First Nations leaders.


https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/ ... affecting/

And the rebuttal.

Quote:
“We are not a country where politicians can order the police to do something, we are a country that has confidence in its police forces and allows them to do their work in scope of these blockade,” Trudeau said, while speaking to reporters in Germany.


https://www.theglobeandmail.com/canada/ ... affecting/

Well either his memory is a little fuzzy or he's just become so arrogant that he thinks we're all like his voter base and can't remember what happened a year ago. I wonder if he remembers being the politician who initiated the investigation into Admiral Norman or if he just chose to ignore that fact? So, he's either an idiot or a hypocrite and in this case i'll let people make up their own mind which it is.

https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politic ... inst-vice/

But, I guess that's okay because as we all know, he's not really a politician anyway. And, just in case people have forgotten, one party leader is calling for the enforcement of the laws as laid out by the courts and our PM is publicly calling for the enforcement of the rules to be ignored based solely on the race of some of the perpetrators.

Tell me how his actions aren't based on race?

He must in reality be one o' those conservatives Beave keeps whinging on about. A racist sack of crap with no respect for the rule of law.

Could be but I prefer to view him as what he is. A petty dictator, race baiting, anti Canadian asshole who only abides by the law when it suits him and who's purposely using his fathers model of divide and conquer for his own twisted ambitions.

Sorry but I have to disagree with the Rex. These types of protests aren't the type we usually see which leads me to believe that it isn't the environuts concocting this wave of lawlessness but someone or something else. FFS this action has turned native against native, which just doesn't normally happen.

Besides, the environmentalists normally source their protests at the site of their ire. This protest is Canada wide which means that it's a well coordinated, well thought out and a very well funded attempt not only to stop the pipeline, which is just an excuse but, to shut down or damage Canada's economy.

So, if we want to know what the real motives are, all the police have to do is arrest some of these lawbreakers and remember the red is positive, the black is negative and the testicles should be wet. This will likely find the source of the funding and if you can find that source, because it's costing someone a ton of money you'll find why these psuedo environmentalists are targeting what is possibly the most environmentally friendly of all Canada's pipelines?

But I do agree with Rex that our PM's response to this illegal activity has been extremely lacking to say the least.

I have a theory but like everyone else, no actual proof. But, I can't help but feel that given the Meng Wanzhou trial coming to a conclusion, this coordinated set of blockades is a tactic by the Chinese to be a show of force designed to give our gov't pause about extraditing the woman to the US. It's also a coordinated effort designed to show our gov't that they can shut Canada down whenever they choose court rulings or not because they know our current gov't has no desire or will to stop lawbreakers so long as they can play the race card.

Yes, but if we get rid of the malaise and lack of testicular fortitude by our govt's we can have it rise up again like the Phoenix. All we as voters have to have is the willingness to put partisanship aside, demand the gov't stand up to special interest groups, foreign interference, the corruption they themselves are involved in and stop pandering to that small but vocal group of natives who wallow in their own self pity and deluded dreams that we as a nation bow to their demands.

Fix those issues and we have a chance of taking back our country.

Are you open to the possibility that he is just an actor, like Papa schTroumpf down south, reading (if you can call it that) a script that is fed to him by people you will never know?
