CN Fined $1 Million+ for Renewable Fuels Violation

Of the 224 million litres of diesel fuel that CN imported between July 1, 2011 and Dec. 31, 2012, at least 4.48 million (or 2%) should have been renewable. But government inspectors found that only 3.672 million litres were renewable. CN pleaded guilty to violating the Renewable Fuels Regulations and was fined $25 and ordered to pay $1,01,627 more to promote environmental protection [Canadian National Railway Co., Govt. Press Release, May 17, 2018].
