CN Issues Statement in Response to Surface Transportation Board Decision

MONTREAL, Aug. 31, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CN (TSX: CNR, NYSE: CNI) today issued the following statement in response to the recent decision by the Surface Transportation Board (“STB”) in relation to CN’s proposed combination with Kansas City Southern (NYSE: KSU) (“KCS”):

We are disappointed in the STB’s decision regarding the joint voting trust application filed by CN and KCS. We are evaluating the options available to us in light of the STB’s decision.

We remain confident that our pro-competitive, end-to-end combination is in the public interest and that it would offer unparalleled opportunities and benefits for customers, employees, the environment and the North American economy. The combined company would create the premier railway for the 21st century and establish seamless single-line service from Canada, through the United States and into Mexico.

Since the proposed combination with KCS was announced, we have been encouraged by the overwhelming support from both companies’ customers, employees, local communities and shareholders. We continue to believe that the combination of CN and KCS would enhance competition, expand North American trade and power economic prosperity, provide new and faster routes, increase supply chain efficiency and deliver other benefits to the public good.

About CN

Essential to the economy, to the customers, and to the communities it serves, CN safely transports more than 300 million tons of natural resources, manufactured products, and finished goods throughout North America every year.

Transportation Position Statement | The Arc

People with intellectual and/or developmental disabilitiesmust have access to both public and private transportation to lead full, independent lives.

ISSUE

Our constituents lack sufficient access to mass transit, paratransit, trains, ferries, airplanes, their own vehicles, and other modes of transportation to perform everyday activities. Even where accessible public transportation exists, adults with disabilities consider transportation inadequate. In the U.S., 24 million individuals with disabilities use public transit to maintain their independence and participate fully in society.

For many, it is their only transit option. Although federal and state legislation encourages more people with all types of disabilities to go to work, getting to work requires transportation. Inadequate transportation inhibits community involvement. Those living in rural areas often face the greatest challenge of all due to total lack of public transportation and long distances between destinations.

POSITION

Transportation agencies, service providers, and advocacy organizations must ensure that:

  • There is increasing flexibility and growth in available transportation options throughout the U.S. for our constituents, including those in rural areas.
  • Public transportation is adequately funded and available.
  • Existing public transportation is accessible, available in a timely manner, and equipped to suit the physical, sensory, and/or cognitive needs of all people.
  • Paratransit systems for those who need them must be available at comparable cost and funded as an alternative to mass transportation.
  • Our constituents have the option of owning and operating their vehicles.

 

Rev’d 2013

Joint Statement with the American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD).

“People with intellectual disability and/or developmental disabilities” refers to those defined by AAIDD classification and DSM IV. In everyday language they are frequently referred to as people with cognitive, intellectual and/or developmental disabilities although the professional and legal definitions of those terms both include others and exclude some defined by DSM IV.
