Major Changes On The Way For CN

Big changes are coming to CN rail.

Embattled CEO JJ Ruest says he will retire from the post early next year. That announcement comes about a month after CN failed in its bid to take over Kansas city southern. Although CN's bid was more lucrative than a bid made earlier by Calgary based CP rail, there were problems with the bid that forced CN to back out. That angered some of the major investors with CN like London based TCI fund management. It quickly called for a shake-up of CN's top brass and even wanted a former CP executive named as CEO.

The company shared the results of their third quarter on Tuesday and revenues did increase by 5 percent to over 3.5 billion dollars. Gross tonne miles decreased over the quarter due to reduced volumes of Canadian grain, compared to the record volumes seen in the third quarter of 2020.

Meanwhile, CP's bid to take over KC southern is moving forward, and should be completed within a year.
