New rail safety regulations to be unveiled ‘this year,’ Raitt says | CTV News

The government needs to improve the Railway Safety Act, which was amended and received royal assent on May 17, 2012.

They removed the following from the law: “To recognize the responsibility of railway companies in ensuring the safety of their operations.”

The entire process of legislating railways and enforcement needs change. Minister Raitt’s changes to regulations are mere window dressing. A Royal Commission into railway safety is needed.
