The new blocks in both Quebec and Ontario came Tuesday, a day after police dismantled a major rail blockade near Belleville, Ontario. The largest emerged in Hamilton, Ontario, along a heavily traveled commuter rail line.

The disruption along what the Go Transit passenger rail service describes as its busiest route have left thousands of passengers scrambling to make alternative travel plans amid numerous delays and cancellations.
