CPR to end operations at Thunder Bay terminal
Canadian Pacific Railway will end operations at the freight container terminal in Thunder Bay, Ontario, effective April 28.
The railway said the decision was a result of dwindling activity at the terminal, with a daily average last year of fewer than 10 processed containers. Traffic is expected to decrease further with the closure of the Cascades Fine Papers Group plant in the region.
CPR said that none of its 375 employees at its Thunder Bay rail yard and rail car repair operations will be affected by the closure of the intermodal terminal, although five employees of two independent contractors who work at the terminal will be affected.
