Mr. Speaker, on Tuesday another CN freight train derailed, this on top of four serious derailments in August.
An investigation into a fatal derailment in 2003 states:
Although TC had developed a program...that called for...inspections and audits...the program was not consistently carried out....
The review concluded:
Because there was no Transport Canada...audit of work procedures, there was no opportunity to identify...[problems].
Transport Canada dropped the ball and two people died.
Investigating CN is not enough. When will the minister start doing his job at protecting Canadians?
