So it's not as simple as looking at the gross amount offered - individual stockholder considerations could be important.
    I agree with this as well. CP should be rewarded here to expand its operations. More regulation headaches for CN. But wow they are scrapping!

    And here I thought the biggest rivalry in Canada was hockey-related...

    From a strictly regulatory standpoint, CP certainly has an easier shot at pulling off a merger, but I doubt that will stop CN from trying to brute-force their way in anyway, if for no other reason than to spite CP

    Hmmmm, figure CP can top this? So CN doesn't end up with egg on it's face?

    Kansas City Southern likely to start talks with CN Rail.
