As of 2/3/20, Pan Am Railways and Washington County Railroad (owned by Vermont Rail System) have both filed "Notice Of Intent To Participate (Without Comment)" in the CP acquisition of CMQ proceedings at the STB. In addition to copying Elaine Chao (US Secretary of Transportation) and William Barr (US Attorney General), both Pan Am and WACR have copied the following provocative list of industry people/entities about the 2 RRs' intent to participate:
James A. Therriault VP of Materials Handling for Sprague Resources GP LLCs at 185 International Drive Portsmouth, NH 03801
Bruce A. Van Note Commissioner of Maine DoT at 16 State House Station Augusta, ME 04333-0016
Jerome Pelletier VP of Saw Mills Division for Irving at 300 Union Street Saint John, NB
Tim Baade Senior VP and GM Irving Consumer Products at 102 Dawson Ave Dieppe, NB
Mark Mosher VP Pulp & Paper for Irving at 300 Union Street Saint John, NB
David Saucy VP - Construction & Equipment Division for Irving at 30 Jervis Lane Saint John, NB
Ron Clow General Manager at Cavendish Farms at 100 Midland Drive Dieppe, NB
Robert Culliford Legal Counsel for Pan Am and submitter of Pan Am's filing also copied Peter F Young Counsel for VRS and submitter of VRS' filing.
Given most of the entities above are not served directly by either VRS or Pan Am, why would the 2 RRs think it was important to let them know of their intent to participate without comment at the CP-CMQ acquisition proceedings?
