Canada says closely monitoring labor dispute at CN Rail

OTTAWA, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Canada is closely monitoring a dispute between the railroad workers' union and Canadian National Railway Co and is urging both parties to continue talking, a spokeswoman for Labour Minister Kellie Leitch said on Tuesday.

"The best solution in any dispute is always the one that the parties reach themselves," the spokeswoman said in a statement.

In May 2012 the Canadian government passed legislation forcing an end to a strike at Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd . The spokeswoman did not respond when asked whether Ottawa would be prepared to intervene if CN Rail workers went on strike.
