Media Advisory - Rail Safety Week - CN launches Target Zero campaign in Canada

    MONTREAL, April 22 /CNW Telbec/ - CN (TSX: CNR)(NYSE:   CNI) invites media
representatives to support Rail Safety Week from April 27 to May 3, 2009. This
year, CN will launch its Target Zero public awareness campaign, aimed at
ultimately reducing the numbers of trespassing and railway crossing accidents
to zero.
    Throughout the week, CN Police will be out in full force, conducting
safety blitz operations at about 180 highway/railway crossings and commuter
stations across Canada and the United States. They will be sending clear
messages to motorists and commuters about the importance of safety at
crossings as well as the deadly risks of trespassing on railway tracks and
    The numbers of deaths and serious injuries from crossing accidents and
from people trespassing on railway property remain unacceptably high. CN will
continue to work aggressively to bring down those numbers - through education,
prevention and enforcement - with the ultimate goal of Zero accidents, Zero
injuries and Zero fatalities.

    A news release and list of blitz locations will be distributed on this
newswire on Monday, April 27, 2009 at 6 a.m. (ET).
