The STB came out against the deal between CNR stock and KSU, as it doesn’t believe it has the voting trust that would see the deal go through. CNR stock had tried to get around some of the regulatory issues raised by the STB by forming this voting trust, offering to payout KSU shareholders before the deal was even approved. The STB further stated that the deal would "raise risks that threaten to undermine the public interests the board considers."
