Yes, how many must die first and even if they do not, if they live near the rails the every day uncertainty is terrible to live under daily. We've had enough of these accidents to know, this needs to stop. If working with sanity this is something that would of been stopped in it's to speak.....until a guarantee that this will not continue is provided.

But not today, it's too important for the Greedy SOB's to sell more more more and could care less who suffers or dies in the meantime. Not to mention we need to keep the oil in the ground to prevent further Climate issues.

I would like to see how Stephen Harper would like it if an oil train would just go by at his house.
Petition signed.

Also have signed many petitions on this--many vigils were held to honor those who lost their lives at Lac-Megantic. God bless all who care and love Mother Earth.
