“Railroaded!” Identifies Further Flaws With Railway’s Proposal to Ship Tar Sand Crude

by on November 22, 2012

In our previous post, we omitted one further major reason why the railway’s goal of shipping Alberta’s crude oil by rail instead of by pipeline is a serious problem: regulation, or the lack of it – to specifically address the impact that the proposed massive increase in freight volume could potentially have on both communities as well as areas of environmental sensitivity.

However, John Kristensen, the author behind the highly informative “Railroaded!” blog, tackles the issue in a recent article, which we have reblogged below for our readers.

Kristensen was the subject behind our previous post “No Can Do.”

We highly recommend “Railroaded” to anyone concerned about current practices in the railway industry from an environmental, social, and safety perspective.
