Der Jager at the throttle. I have to love the comments that "they're training office workers to be locomotive engineers "just in case we run out of them". Gotta give that Spin Doc an A+.

CP employees represented by Teamsters Canada did walk early Sunday, but are expected to be returned to work on Monday. Obviously the action to have Non-Agreement employees learn to take operating employees work was in preparation for a lengthy strike:

"This decision ensures both sides will get back to the table, and gets us back to moving Canada's economy forward," said E. Hunter Harrison, CP's Chief Executive Officer. "While we would have preferred a negotiated settlement, this is the right thing to do at this time."
Ken V. Moderator: Most things Canadian.
Any time could be train time!
