SARNIA, ONT. - An injunction against Aboriginal Idle No More protesters blockading a CN spur line at Aamjiwnaang First Nation has been extended.

CN lawyers were in Ontario Superior Court in Toronto Thursday where an initial injunction granted Dec. 21 - the day the blockade began - was extended for an indefinite period, said railway spokesman Jim Feeny.

“It is an illegal blockade,” he said.

A senior CN official was scheduled to meet Friday with Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley and Police Chief Phil Nelson “to see what steps could be taken now to achieve the judge’s instructions, which are essentially to resolve this,” Feeny said.
