The Transportation Safety Board of Canada Identifies Problems with Train Operations on Extreme Mountain Territory

(Gatineau, Quebec, July 11, 2007) – The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) released its final investigation report (R05V0141) today into the Canadian National (CN) train derailment near Squamish, British Columbia, on August 5, 2005. Nine cars derailed, including one tank car that ruptured, spilling approximately 40 000 litres of sodium hydroxide, also known as caustic soda, into the Cheakamus River. The spill killed over 500 000 fish from 10 different species and caused extensive environmental damage. The Board investigation revealed that a number of causes and contributing factors led to the derailment, and uncovered safety deficiencies in the Canadian railway transportation system, some of which still need to be addressed.
