Via Rail says partial service is set to resume between Quebec City, Montreal and Ottawa beginning Thursday.

Via trains have been disrupted by protests by people showing solidarity with Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs opposing the Coastal GasLink project.

Protestors have blocked rail lines across the country and disrupted freight and passenger traffic.

Via says the partial resumption of service between Ottawa and Quebec City follows a notification received from Canadian National Railway.
