MONTREAL, Nov. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – CN (TSX: CNR, NYSE: CNI) today sent a letter to CN shareholders in connection with its upcoming special meeting of shareholders (the “Special Meeting“) on March 22, 2022, and in response to recent documents filed by CIFF Capital and TCI (collectively”TCI“).
