Trains between Toronto and Montreal are still stalled amid anti-pipelines protests.
Many Via Rail trains are still unable to travel on the route between Toronto and Montreal. Via posted a message on the website this morning informing the potential passengers about the ongoing protests. In the notice, it was mentioned that the trains that travel between Toronto and Montreal and Ottawa and Toronto had been affected in both directions. No trains on those two routed are going to operate until further notice.
The blockades are going to continue even after Via Rail has acquired an injunction to have police remove the protesters at least from the tracks. RCMP, along with other police departments, said that the protests are allowed to continue as long as they do not block the rails. The blockage is in solidarity with those who are not in favour of Coastal GasLink pipeline. However, the Wet’suwet’ en Tribal Council and most hereditary chiefs support the pipeline project.
