    Winter has returned. Western Canada experienced several snow storms that are causing avalanches. CP reported late last week that trains will be delayed by 48-72 hours. 
     
    Meanwhile, Eastern Canada has been hit with a major storm that blanketed Quebec with snow. The storm hit the Maritimes and the port of Halifax with about 50cm of snow. We expect congestion and delays evacuating containers from Halifax.
