‘I cannot compromise on safety,’ Marc Garneau says
Federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau is ordering that all trains carrying a significant amount of dangerous goods on federal lines slow down, in the wake of a CP crude oil train derailment in Saskatchewan this morning.
“I am very concerned about the derailments of railway cars containing dangerous goods in the past 12 months,” Garneau said in a statement issued earlier today. “That is why I am issuing an immediate order to slow trains carrying significant quantities of dangerous goods on federally regulated railway tracks across Canada.”
