CN Rail is investing big money in the Prince George area this construction season.

A few days ago, the national railway’s vice-president of corporate services and chief legal officer Sean Finn was in Prince George, British Columbia, for a trio of duties.

The first was to apologize to the region’s wood manufacturers for an unprecedented backlog that has delayed big-ticket products like lumber, pulp chips and bioenergy pellets from getting to market. Secondly, he was on a fact-finding mission to find out how those factories and mills could be better served in a revamped CN Rail shipping model, since the company was injecting billions of dollars into restoring viability to its service.
