On December 20, 1918, the federal government created the Canadian National Railways (CNR) – a title only with no corporate powers – through a Canadian Privy Council Order in Council as a means to simplify the funding and operation of the various railway companies.
The absorption of the Intercolonial Railway would see CNR adopt that system's slogan The People's Railway.
In the early 20th century, many governments were taking a more interventionist role in the economy, foreshadowing the influence of economists like John Maynard Keynes.
This political trend, combined with broader geo-political events, made nationalization an appealing choice for Canada.
The only passenger services run by CN after 1978 were several mixed trains (freight and passenger) in Newfoundland, and a several commuter trains both on CN's electrified routes and towards the South Shore in the Montreal area (the latter lasted without any public subsidy until 1986).
The Newfoundland mixed trains lasted until 1988, while the Montreal commuter trains are now operated by Montreal's AMT.
In my spare time I like going for coffee, going to movies, etc.
I am quite shy when it comes to meeting people for the first time, especially women.
I have one amazing 2 year old daughter who i absolutely adore and she means the world to me :).Canadian National Railways was born out of both wartime and domestic urgency.Railways, until the rise of the personal automobile and creation of taxpayer-funded all-weather highways, were the only viable long-distance land transportation available in Canada for many years.Today, CN owns about 20,400 route miles (32,831 km) of track in eight provinces (the only two not served by CN are Newfoundland & Labrador and Prince Edward Island), as well as a 70-mile (113 km) stretch of track (see Mackenzie Northern Railway) into the Northwest Territories to Hay River on the southern shore of Great Slave Lake; it is the northernmost rail line anywhere within the North American rail network outside of Alaska.
The railway was referred to as the Canadian National Railways (CNR) between 19, and as Canadian National/Canadien National (CN) from 1960 to the present.
Another Canadian railway, the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway (GTPR), encountered financial difficulty on March 7, 1919, when its parent company Grand Trunk Railway (GTR) defaulted on repayment of construction loans to the federal government.
