CN Rail said on Thursday it has  been forced to initiate "a disciplined and progressive shutdown" of its operations in Eastern Canada as a result of a continued blockade of the rail line that could have a dramatic affect on customers in Atlantic Canada.

The railway in a statement said its decision to shutdown Eastern Canada operations include "stopping and safely securing all trans-continental trains across its Canadian network and may imminently lead to temporary layoffs within the company’s Eastern Canadian operational staff."
