Canada: Pipeline protests shut down main rail routes

Protests against a gas pipeline by Indigenous groups shut down major rail networks, causing disruptions for passengers and freight.

Most of Canada’s main rail routes have ground to a halt, as mass protests continue against the construction of a natural gas pipeline.

Indigenous groups are leading the movement over concerns the project will infringe on traditional lands.
