Prevent a Northern BC rail disaster before it’s too late
Join us in calling on the Minister of Transportation Omar Alghabra (formerly Marc Garneau) to initiate an independent risk assessment under the Railway Safety Act prior to any further increase in the transportation of dangerous goods. Sign Now!
The volume of dangerous goods being transported by rail through our communities and the Skeena and Fraser watersheds is set to sky rocket in the coming months.
Three new propane and liquid petroleum export proposals in Prince Rupert and Kitimat are set to increase the current 50-60 rail cars per day to up to 410 cars per day without a risk assessment or requirement to use the safest technology.
These trains will run through the hearts of our communities and along the banks of our wild salmon rivers, carrying both explosive products and those that are acutely toxic to fish.
