 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.

"Undue trouble to Canadians" is codeword for "bosses not getting exactly what they want".
