All I have ever heard about CN from it's employees and from press releases about its mistakes has been bad news...

I think that's seven spills now in the last 12 months, I can't say for certain, but I was quoted 6 in the last year yesterday by a CN employee, so I'll add this one and that makes 7.

Sad that CN stands for Canadian national. There's nothing Canadian to be proud of in a company that has shown such a constant lack of responsibility and ability to wreak tremendous damage on our waterways...

News reports say that both trains involved were being operated by management at the time of the collision. I went down and had a look at the scene this afternoon, and it did not appear to be much if any in the way of a spill to hit the river. That said, good thing for safety valves, the tank cars involved had flames shooting upwards of a hundred feet at times. Hopefully there was no spillage to hit the river, bad timing considering it is prime time in the migration of the upper Fraser chinook and early Stuart sockeye.
