While CN employees are in contract negotiations and demanding improved safety in the industry, another oil train caught fire in Virginia. Right now the oil is spilling into a river.
This follows an accident last Sunday when an oil train caught on fire in Ontario. Rail accidents are happening more and more frequently. Let us not forget Lac-Mégantic. The transportation of oil and the deregulation of the railway industry are both extremely dangerous for ecosystems and for public safety.
Let us act now to protect lives.
