The ON and QC transportation ministers sent a letter to the federal Transport Minister on what they call the growing number of “very serious and unacceptable train derailments,” demanding that the federal government to do more to improve rail regulations. The letter also notes that the TSB warned Transport Canada that the upgraded standards for new tank cars built for the transportation of flammable liquids aren’t sufficient and that more needs to be done to prevent dangerous fires and explosions when incidents happen.
