National Day of Protest Threatens VIA Rail Services in Ontario and Quebec


VIA Rail Canada wishes to advise passengers that its services in Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada may be impacted by a possible blockade of rail lines that could be undertaken as part of the National Day of Action on June 29, 2007.
VIA services likely to be affected (in both directions) are the following:

· Toronto-Montréal
· Toronto-Ottawa
· Montréal-Senneterre
· Montréal-Halifax (June 28th departure)
· Halifax-Montréal (June 29th departure)

While VIA has not received any official confirmation of planned actions, and in fact may not receive any advance warning regarding the extent or location of a blockade, we wish to advise passengers who need to travel on June 29th on the above noted services, so that they can make alternate transportation plans if they wish to do so.

VIA will be waiving any ticket service charges for passengers who wish to change their travel dates.

VIA and the railways over which its trains operate are monitoring the situation closely and will issue updates as more information becomes available.

VIA regrets any inconvenience this situation may cause its customers. Customers may call VIA at 888-VIA-RAIL or visit for further information.
