FWIW, rumblings are that the Canadian ought to be operating as of the end of next week...but it's still a "fog of war" situation there.

The Churchill train will resume it's full route as of March 1st. Interestingly, although there were no announcements of service resumption, the Canadian cancellation date was moved from the 2nd to the 1st with today's update, whereas it had being pushed back one day with each update previously.

They shut down the GO trains both east and west of Toronto today. No First Nations' involvement at all apparently.

There were four separate blockades, but all are now clear and GO is operating normally this morning.

Also, the Canadian consists that were stranded in Winnipeg are on their way back to Toronto and Vancouver.

Service on all Via Rail routes except Jasper-Prince Rupert will be reintroduced over the next week. For the Canadian, only the westbound departing on Wednesday and the eastbound departing on Friday are guaranteed, with everything after that still undecided.
