The Vaudreuil-Hudson, St-Jérôme and Candiac commuter rail traces had been stalled early Wednesday morning for near half an hour on account of an obvious communications glitch on the CP rail traces they run on.


By eight:15 a.m., passengers on all three traces had been caught on their trains for a minimum of 20 minutes. Exo, the regional authority that oversees the commuter traces, mentioned it had been knowledgeable by CP that the difficulty was attributable to a pc malfunction.
