Mohawk protesters block rail line, four arrested

Mohawk protesters have up the ante in their bid to send a strong message to Ottawa.

Police are reporting that since 10:15 a.m. Saturday, protesters started occupying the CN rail crossing at Wyman Rd., outside Belleville, Ont., forcing the rail company to put a stop order on all trains using that line.

Via Rail has also halted passenger trains on the Toronto-Montreal and Toronto-Ottawa lines because of the blockade.
