PRINCE GEORGE, BC, April 18, 2018 (CBC) -CN Rail is investing big money in the Prince George area this construction season.

The national railway's vice-president of corporate services and chief legal officer Sean Finn was in the city last week 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.
