MONTREAL, April 26, 2021 (CBC) -Port of Montreal workers began an open-ended strike Monday morning, effectively halting operations at one of the country's busiest ports and threatening the supply chains of thousands of businesses.

It is the second labour dispute in less than a year at the port. A 19-day strike last August cost wholesalers an estimated $600 million in lost sales.

Under pressure from both the Ontario and Quebec governments, federal Labour Minister Filomena Tassi signalled on Sunday she was prepared to legislate an end to the work stoppage.
