CN's $2.6M mystery U.S. trips never unloaded biodieselIt seems the same loaded cars purposely crossed the border 26 times to generate the bills for the cross border charges.
'CN met its obligations as a common carrier and we have no further comment,' spokesman tells CBC
A CBC News investigation has uncovered a cross-border mystery involving unexplained shipments of biodiesel tanker cars that were sent back and forth numerous times between Canada and the U.S. by CN Rail but were never unloaded.
