Canada pipeline protests: Businesses demand gov't act over losses

It is estimated the rail crisis has cost the Canadian economy $5bn but there is talk of a settlement by the weekend.

    Business groups in Canada are demanding the government end demonstrations that have paralysed the country’s rail network.

    They estimate the disruption is costing the country’s economy billions of dollars.

    The protesters oppose the building of the Coastal GasLink pipeline.

    It passes through the land of indigenous people known as First Nations in Canada.
