    Jérémy -
    What's your feelings with the shareholder letter ? Personally, I have difficulty to think that TCI doesn't want the well-being of CN in the long-term (even if it could be for a short-term interest). I'm not saying that TCI made an intelligent decision in trying to confuse the investors, but if you're doing your own analysis, you're fine with a great business like Canadian National.

    Not sure if anyone has been following the fiasco with the Air Canada CEO, but it definitely throws a wrench in TCI’s plan to instal Jim Venna in the position at CN. CN is a federally regulated business, and subject to the Official Languages Act. You may say good, English is enough, but the expectation that the CEO speak French will be high. This is effectively what CN management is saying between the lines in their releases.

    While TCI putting pressure on management to improve operations is great news, they are not exactly finessing the relationship either.

    I’m looking for a productive compromise between TCI and other key shareholders like the Caisse, and I’m optimistic.

    anybody ever figure out why Derek spends his entire day bashing CN..................................................
  • D
    CN has an "Indigenous Advisory Council".
    12 unqulaified politicos, making egregious amounts of money to do precisely nothing but allow CN to tick another box on the Wokeness Checklist.

    Canada is a joke, and CN is lost.

    Downgraded to $129. Guess the poor grain crops are really going to affect the bottom line next spring

    Would you recommend investing in this company?

    CN announced its purchase of Wabtec’s FLXdrive battery-electric freight locomotive, the first 100-percent battery heavy-haul locomotive for the region in support of CN’s sustainability goals.

    This technology will never work!!
    Who remembers Railpower Technologies?
    I do because I invested money and so did the Ontario Teachers Pension $30m.
    Railpower Technologies entered into bankruptcy in 2009. They named their locomotive THE GREEN GOAT and it was for the company and investors. Westinghouse's WABTEC will follow in the steps of the GREEN GOAT= Chapter 11.

    Wouldn't anyone on this thread like to see some increased dividend payouts along in combination with the share price appreciation?

    Bloomberg Nov. 11/21:
    Toshiba Corp. said (its) former Chief Executive Officer.....violated ethical standards when he and the management team worked against activist investors trying to gain more control of the conglomerate, according to a long-awaited internal report....
    ....the probe into Toshiba’s handling of its annual shareholders’ meeting concluded.....the company showed “excessive cautiousness” toward foreign investors.... earlier, independent report detailed how Toshiba tapped government allies to try to influence voting at its annual general meeting last year. Management worked hand in hand with public officials in an attempt to sway the outcome, it said.

    No worries of this with CN independent or internal investigations would find anything of the sort.

    Because Canada has a demonstrably unethical federal government, no record of enforcing basic corporate behavior standards, and none of the sense of personal, individual honor that Japan does.

    One should be investing in electric utilities because the demand for electricity will soar in the next 30 years

    CEO "retiring"...MONTREAL, Oct. 19, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CN (TSX: CNR) (NYSE: CNI) today announced that Jean-Jacques (JJ) Ruest will retire as president and chief executive officer and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Company, effective as of the end of January 2022, or such later time as a successor has been appointed to ensure a flawless transition.
  • T
    Over valued here, taking profits.
  • D
    CN's board is wasting time, shareholders' money and a potential opportunity by setting up a CEO search committee now.

    1) Shareholders should vote on a full slate of directors without any undue delay.
    The board that emerges from that process is the legitimate board that then chooses its new CEO.

    2) The board should then interview the already proposed, highly qualified candidate, Jim Vena.
    Then either hire him, or don't.

    3) If the latter, THEN form a search committee.

    I don't disagree with some of Derek's statements but he sounds like a disgruntled former CN employee.
    Hope he hasn't sold his shares in protest.

    Not sure why this keeps getting deleted but regarding the perceived conflict of interest due TCI owning substantial stakes in both CP and CN: CN’s share price has been the clear laggard among its rail peers over the last 5 year. If it kept pace at all with the next closest performers over that time period, CP and UNP, the share price would now be around $190CAD. CN has the most attractive network in North America, but has been underperforming it’s peers. Something has to give, and TCI is right to be more exigent of CN’s management.
