The Bayside Canadian Railway?!?

When you think of Canadian railroads, carriers like Canadian Pacific, Pacific Great Eastern/British Columbia Railway, and the Algoma Central come to mind. But the Bayside Canadian Railway?!? This was a less than 1-mile long carrier that was used as a workaround for the USA's Jones Act by a seafood company that wanted to pay less for its shipments. Unfortunately a Federal judge struck it down, but that didn't make it any less interesting. Check out the article below on its last judicial gasp. Article link from The Maritime Executive
