After a day of rail disruption, protesters near the Tyendinaga Mohawk reserve in southern Ontario who blocked the Montreal-Toronto Via Rail line to draw attention to missing and murdered aboriginal women have gone home.

CN is inspecting the tracks and level crossing barriers to reopen the rail line. The blockade was at Marysville, ON between Belleville and Kingston.

Train service between Montreal and Ottawa kept running throughout the day. However, service between Toronto and Ottawa and between Toronto and Montreal was halted. Trains travelling in the Montreal-Toronto corridor were replaced by chartered buses.
