I was talking to a client that works for CN Rail here in Prince George and he mentioned the success of CN. The Intermodal container traffic has double since January's of this year and coal trains have tripled.

Companies that are using the container route through Pr.Rupert to Prince George to Edmonton to Chicago return shaves off 3 full days per container vs other routes. That's sounds like allot of savings.

Ain't it great.

Just a quick fyi... Sales total combined for in & out of city limits.
Sales to date (Jan 1, 2012 to Aug 22, 2012) this year is 805
Sales in 2011 (Jan 1, 2011 to Aug 22, 2011) was 810

Overall, today's labour force survey numbers are not nearly as bad as the headline. Full-time employment continues to post solid growth in BC, averaging nearly 5,000 full-time jobs per month, the strongest full-time job growth since 2005.  While...
