I'm very mindful of the need for rail safety in East Vancouver, so this Transportation Safety Board report, as a result of the tragedy and loss of life in Lac-Mégantic, is something the Government must pay attention to and act on. Self-regulation has failed. Rail safety must have government oversight. - Libby
