Federal Transport Minister, Jean Lapierre seems worried about rail safety in Canada.
In fact, he states he is “concerned about CN’s overall safety performance and [has] written to senior officials at CN to express those concerns.”
The Transport Minister gave a “clear” mandate to CN officials that “if corrective actions aren’t taken by the company I could call a public inquiry into CN’s operations.” (www.globeandmail.com).
A Transport Canada safety audit on railway operations is to be released possibly in December to the public.
The Canadian Government is concerned about rail safety of late, with the all-too-numerous train wrecks “and could order a public inquiry into its [CN Rail] operations.” (routers.com).
The Federal Transport Minister also said “We are finding all sorts of problems and we hope they get corrected fast.” (routers.com).
This will be an interesting watch for sure!
