money shipping oil out of the Dakotas. Boy, it sure is a good thing O'bama is keeping the pipeline from competing...er.. polluting ?
Agreed, I'd much rather see this traffic on the rails....CP will also benefit greatly from this oil boom, and has recently hired 1500 T&E crews in this region.
Regarding the 1500 CP new hires, is that figure for both Canadian and US employment numbers or is it just on the US side of the border?I know of a couple people who applied for Conductor Trainee positions, but were passed over. At the same time, CP was recruiting new hires for the Dakotas from of all places... Detroit, MI!What was happening there? Is CP getting some sort of Obama tax-break for hiring from MI? I don't see many new hires from Detroit wanting to stay in the Dakotas.
