I am glad the federal minister of Transportation decided to lower the CP rail speed to 40 km an hour, give what happened in the Lac Megantic disaster, the two derailments at Gogama and the Wanapetie River, and now twice out west.

The train blasts by my house at 100 km an hour day and night, with an average of 200 of those flammable cars at any given time.

It’s a miracle it hasn’t derailed yet.
