In light of the most recent train derailment in Gainford, Alta., on Oct. 19 – is this the fourth since this summer in Canada? – and the horrendous situation with oil products burning out of control, I think it is only fitting that we quickly readjust our thinking and aim for the fastest possible relocation for the tracks that pass through our highly populated areas of White Rock and South Surrey.
No one wants the guilt associated with the tragedy of Lac-Mégantic visited upon us here in B.C.
This is not a new idea. Many people have been working on and discussing this very critical safety situation for many, many years. There are maps and detailed studies with various solutions.
Please restart the government movement to make this once jewel of Canada again a place where one and all can walk on the beaches and feel the wonder and the safety of what it means to live in Canada.
