‘This week I, along with Mayor Tory and 16 of my colleagues on Council, sent a letter to Minister Lisa Raitt, reiterating our concerns with rail safety and particularly as it relates to the transport of crude oil throughout Toronto. We have asked that the Federal Government take a number of steps to help ensure the safety of residents living in communities along the CP corridor, including: promoting better communication between the rail industry and local communities; reviewing safety standards; accelerating the removal of DOT-111 tank cars; examining the impacts of regulations to reduce the speed of rail through urban areas, and; examining alternate routes for transporting dangerous goods.
