At last night’s meeting of Parry Sound Council there was agreement that the town would send a letter to the federal authorities among others requesting better regulation and information sharing with respect to the operation of trains that travel through Parry Sound and other communities across Canada.

A number of suggested points and subjects were raised for inclusion in the letter.

May I recommend that Staff and Council read this short post at the website Railroaded for some suggestion of key points that might be included? As always this website offers an opinionated but, in my opinion, a reasonably balanced perspective on rail safety in Canada.
