There’s only so many times transportation systems can be brought to a halt and online computer systems are brought down, before Canadians become suspicious.

The last two weeks have seen people claim they hacked the Canadian military, Air Canada, and Canada’s Parliament.

Was Canada’s national rail system the latest victim on Tuesday? Another week, and another vital Canadian computer system is shut down. People understand something is very wrong here.

“While there is no indication of a cybersecurity issue, the cause of the outage is currently under investigation,” said CN spokesperson Scott Brown.

Many tens of thousands of commuters and travellers were stranded Tuesday when Canada’s train system, including GO trains servicing the Toronto area, were mysteriously grounded in the heart of rush hour.

Last week, the Canadian Armed Forces had its computer system hacked. Canada’s Parliament also had its networks hit with an orchestrated, international cyberattack.
