MONTREAL – Via Rail says a First Nations railroad blockade is affecting movement of its passenger trains between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal today.
The rail service says the blockade in the Napanee, Ont., area between Belleville and Kingston is affecting trains on the busy Toronto-to-Montreal and Toronto-to-Ottawa routes in both directions.
Trains between Ottawa and Montreal are operating according to the regular schedule for now.

The blockade is part of recent protests in the Belleville area by a First Nations group calling for a federal inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women.
Earlier this month, demonstrators temporarily stopped rail traffic in the area, leading CN to issue a stop order and Via Rail to cancel trips in the busy Toronto-to-Ottawa corridor.
Provincial police made several arrests and three men were charged, including protest spokesman Shawn Brant of Tyendinaga Territory, who faces two counts of mischief.

It says delays can be expected and customers with reservations who choose not to travel will receive a full refund.

Folks, although we here at Perspective sympathize with the natives, and believe they have legitimate  concerns about this issue, they can’t just go around disrupting things all the time.
(Especially when a lot of the stuff is stupid shit!)
