Major rail blockades that shut down train service across the country and sent a chill through the Canadian economy will have lasting impacts even after they’ve been taken down,according to a group of British Columbia business leaders. The Greater Vancouver Board of Trade and the Business Council of BC are among the organizations to pen a joint statement claiming Canada is no longer seen as a safe place for major infrastructure investment. “We are seeing international investors scared off,” GVBT CEO Bridgette Anderson told CTV News. “There’s news of that just today.” Thursday morning, news broke that U.S. billionaire Warren Buffett’s investment firm Berkshire Hathaway was pulling a $4 billion investment for a natural gas export project in Quebec.
