once this crisis is over, I be looking for a lot of answers from a lot of people. on Thursday afternoon, after a conversation with CP CEO Hunter Harrison, the mayor softened his stance.
Acting Calgary fire chief Ken Uzeloc said crews had strung a cable through the railcars and secured it to another train carrying rocks so that if the bridge gave way, the cars wouldn be carried down the river.
extended an apology to the citizens of Calgary for what has happened here, Nenshi said. both agreed, No. 1, our primary responsibility is to get this thing cleaned up and, No. 2, that we will work together much more and he reiterated safety in every community CP Rail runs through is a primary responsibility.

be very blunt. I probably get in trouble for saying this, Nenshi said. seen a lot of people lose their jobs at CP over the last year. How many bridge inspectors did they fire? company, however, said the number of bridge inspectors remained the same.

CALGARY Calgary mayor says Canadian Pacific Railway has apologized for the chaos caused by a train that derailed after a bridge over the swollen Bow River failed Thursday.
The federal government says in Transport Canada safety rules updated last year that railway companies are responsible for inspecting railway bridges.
The bridge gave way after most of the train had crossed. Cars that were still on the tracks were pulled away from either end.
Federal NDP transport critic Olivia Chow said the federal government has to stop allowing rail companies to conduct their own inspections.
will tell you that this has been a constant frustration for every municipal politician in this country forever. carriers aren even subject to city noise bylaws, he said.
Harrison said it was a failure of piers at the bottom of the river. The engineers blamed it on fast water scouring away gravel under the support.
Crews were planning to pull another train along a parallel bridge so the cargo could be pumped off and the empty cars safely removed.
last thing we want is these cars floating down the river and causing problems downstream, Uzeloc said.
The rules state that the rail carriers are responsible for the condition of their bridges and must ensure that corrective action is taken if problems are found.
The primarily industrial area around the derailment was evacuated, including the city sewage treatment plant. Nenshi said staff had to leave because of the evacuation and there was no one left to treat the raw waste water now flowing through the plant. He said the city water supply was safe, though. A major highway, Deerfoot trail, was also shut down for much of the day.

Naheed Nenshi lashed out at the railway Thursday morning, saying he had concerns about the timing of the bridge inspection in relation to flooding that swamped the city. He also wondered why railways are exempt from municipal regulations.

However, Harrison later told reporters the bridge was inspected five times after floodwaters rose. And CP engineers at the scene said the bridge had actually been inspected 18 times since flooding began.
