CN Network Update - Wildfires in British Columbia

Following is an update from CN on network operations in British Columbia.

CN continues to work closely with BC Wildfire Services and we have now been authorized to move a few trains westbound at this time. 

We are not at present running trains on the Lillooet line running from Vancouver to Prince George via Squamish.

The embargo preventing traffic to be billed westbound to Vancouver from northern BC and east of Kamloops and from the BNSF, UP and Vancouver area towards the East also remains in place. At this time, we will not be issuing any permits or lifting the embargo until such a time as our current backlog of traffic has been cleared. 

Intermodal traffic is not impacted by this embargo, it is strictly focused on carload traffic.
