VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 19, 2019 (Local News) -Canadians are about to learn just how important railways still are in Canada.

More than 3,000 CN workers are now on strike, and industries that rely on freight to move products — everything from grain to metallurgical coal and gasoline — are sending warning signals to the federal government that the impacts could be severe, if the strike drags on.

Even if the strike is ended by federal legislation, that could take days or weeks, and by then there could be significant impacts on industries, like lumber and mining in B.C.
