Urgent: Action for Rail Safety is needed

This is no way to get rail safety

February 5, 2018, acquitted Lac-Mégantic rail workers Tom Harding and Richard Labrie must return to the Québec courthouse to face additional charges from the Canadian Ministry of Justice.  Despite being acquitted of all criminal charges after a 3 month trail on January 19th, they continue to face the possibility of jail time and fines connected with the campaign by the government to hold them responsible, while giving a free pass to the US based owners and top managers of the Montreal Maine and Atlantic Railroad.

The trial and previous investigations have made clear that all the critical factors causing the wreck were in place long before Harding and Labrie went to work on July 5, 2013.
