Train Carrying Oil Derails, Catches Fire in New Brunswick, Canada

Too many train derailments carrying crude oil. This time in New Brunswick. Luckily it happened in a non-populated area and nearby community Plaster Rock was evacuated. There seems to be no end to these derailments. I could not find the video which shows as if an atomic bomb was exploded.

How much damage this kind of crude oil transportation will cause before Harper government will take any action?

  1. One of the culprits in the series of derailments that have recently taken place, LD, is the fact that the government made railroad companies responsible for safety. The same kind of self-regulation is now in place in the airline industry. When the next air disaster happens, expect the usual suspects to say that such could not have been anticipated.

  2. Lorne, you're quite right. It is a sad state of affairs. No concern for people's lives. Harper is good at playing blame game.
