CBC Reports that theres been yet another CP derailment, this time in Sudbury.
Someone (aside from me) should keep track of these derailments. As I said in a blog post a couple weeks ago, CP has been cutting and apparently overworking their labour force. Looks like this time the people of Sudbury are suffering as a result.
If these companies can't operate at a proper level to ensure staffing is sufficient to keep these accidents from happening, the government should step in as they seem do whenever there is a danger of strike that could cause undue trouble to Canadian business. Are not trail derailments undue trouble to Canadians in general?
I mean, the Conservatives were so quick to legislate an end to potential labour strife at CP. Yet when CP lays off or fires a large segment of their staff, leading to what could be subsequent operating issues, the government doesn't feel the need to step in there? Somewhat arbitrary politics, Mister Prime Minister.
