Canadian National Railway Co. reported a drastic drop in profits for the three months ended Sept. 30, citing falling consumer demand, fallout from the B.C. port workers strike and a raft of forest fires and floods. Overstocked inventories and dockworkers' 13-day job action in July dented its cargo volumes and revenue, as did ravenous wildfires and floods at both ends of the country. Net income in CN's third quarter fell 24 per cent from a year earlier, the company said in an earnings release after the bell on Tuesday.
