Mohawk protestors being sued by railway
by UPI

TORONTO - A group of Mohawk protestors who blocked off a rail corridor in the Canadian province of Ontario last month is being sued by the CN Rail company.

The railway company is suing the Mohawk protestors for their April 20 demonstration outside Deseronto, Ont., that blocked rail traffic through the region for more than a day, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. said Wednesday.

CN Rail spokesman Mark Hallman said the temporary interruption of business reportedly cost the company more than $100 million.

"We have launched an action to recover the costs associated with the blockade," he said. "This represents the first time that CN has served suit for damages arising from a First Nations blockade of its tracks."

The company did not specify how much it was seeking in its lawsuit.

The CBC said the lawsuit, which also includes individuals connected with the Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory, does ask for an injunction to prevent any future blockades from occurring.
