VIA trains to and from Toronto impacted by native protest

Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa trains delayed

Blockade affects Via service between Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa

Some VIA Rail trains heading to and from Toronto are being delayed because of a First Nations blockade in the Napanee area.

The railroad blockade is in Marysville, which is near Napanee between Belleville and Kingston.

The company says the protest action has delayed trains on Toronto-Montreal routes and Toronto-Ottawa and a handful are being replaced by buses.

    Here's another reason to get rid of the Liberals. These pieces of s**t do what they want when they want where they want and our government doesn't have the backbone to stop this. If any other group tried this they'd be hauled off so quickly they wouldn't know what hit them.

    How do I become a native so I can steal with impunity, sell illegal cigarettes, don't pay taxes, and beat white men without police interference?

      @john They're not useless however it's about time laws that apply to the rest of us apply to them as well, otherwise they continue along the path they're going which doesn't help them in the long run.

      When natives steal your property and it's on their land you can't retrieve it. If you win a lawsuit against a native you can't seize their property. If they physically attack you, even on non-native land, the OPP will just stand there and watch.

      Great province we live in.

    If they won't obey Canadian laws or respect Canadian infrastructure, why the hell should they receive any of my Canadian tax dollars? I would love to see how long their backward reservations would survive if we just stopped paying them.
