Canadian Pacific Railway Announces New Guidelines for Traffic on Trails Along the Railway

Terrebonne, August 29th, 2021 – The Fédération des clubs de motoneigistes du Québec as well as the clubs of the Eastern Townships and the Montérégie have just learned of the unilateral decision of Canadian Pacific to ban snowmobile traffic on the trails along the railroad formerly owned by MMA (CMQ). We have great difficulty in understanding this decision, which was made without consultation and which will have major consequences on the trail network and the regional economy, when, to our knowledge, no accidents have occurred in all the years that our vehicles have used these trails. We are currently evaluating all possible options to convince Canadian Pacific to return to a more reasonable position in order to find solutions that take into account the interests of all.
