CP 'disappointed' with TSB report on 2019 fatal derailment


Canadian Pacific took issue yesterday with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada’s (TSB) report on its investigation into a February 2019 train derailment in which three CP crew members were fatally injured near Field, British Columbia.

The derailment involved two locomotives and 99 cars of a 112-car grain train. As a result of the investigation, the TSB issued three recommendations to make cold-weather train operations safer through mountainous territory, the board announced yesterday.

It was "extremely disappointing that the TSB misrepresented the facts" at a press conference yesterday and "misunderstood key facts" about the incident in its report, CP officials stated in a press release.

The railroad will address its concerns in greater detail with the board, they said. CP’s specific concerns about the TSB report and media presentation can be read here.
