Every day for the last two years – multiple times a day, yet – I hear a train whistle blowing, and blowing and blowing. Yesterday morning was the first time I have actually ever SEEN the train.
CN stands for the Canadian National Railway, and is the largest freight carrier in the country. In actuality, they are the North American leader in freight transportation – 20,421 route miles cross the continent east-west and north-south, serves ports on the Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts and links customers to all three NAFTA nations (Canada, the United States and Mexico).
Since the inception of NAFTA in 1994 linking the three nations, the North American Free Trade Agreement created the world's largest trade area of 444 million people producing $17 trillion worth of goods and services. Now that's definitely something to blow the whistle about!
