The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) will hold a news conference today at 10 a.m. in the Holiday Inn Sudbury to make public the investigation report (R15H0013) into the derailment and fire of a Canadian National Railway crude oil train near Gogama, Ontario.
On March 7, 2015, an eastbound CN train carrying crude oil in 35 cars jumped the rail and spilled into the river, which burst into flames just three kilometres from town. No injuries were reported and no evacuation was needed. However, there still continues to be questions about the cleanup.
Speakers will include Kathy Fox, Chair of the TSB, Rob Johnston, Manager, Central Region Rail Operations and Sylvie Dionne, Manager, Materials Analysis and Structures.
The event will be broadcast live on the TSB’s YouTube channel.
