^^^Page was pretty much unreadable.^^^

Did hear the engineer claim he had set hand brakes on the 5 engines and first 11 cars. One statement said that for that length train the brakes should have been set on about 30 cars (41%).

I did indeed, but it was much too big to bother with scrolling all over the place to read anything.

Hey CM why be informed. Facts we don't need no stinking facts. Facts are meaningless, why facts could be used to prove anything.

It's much better just make up shi...stuff that suits our purpose and our agendas.

CM thank you by the way for the, very informative, in capsulation of the available data up until this point in time.

I will trust your expertise on this matter.

That did require better punctuation as in (?), did it not?

At any rate the answer you seek is positive. And you can trust me on that.

Railway company has stopped paying for Lac-Mégantic disaster cleanup: mayor

Quote:
The railway company involved in the deadly train derailment at Lac-Mégantic has stopped paying for the clean-up of the disaster site, forcing the town to pick up the tab, Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche said Tuesday.

The town has sent a lawyer’s letter to Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway, giving the transport company 48 hours to repay the more than $4-million Lac-Mégantic has had to pay so far to retain the three firms initially hired by MM&A.
Quote:
MM&A chairman Ed Burkhardt could not immediately be reached for comment.

Ms. Roy-Laroche said some of the contractors had stopped working on the mop-up operations and threatened to walk off last week.

The Feds should have got a damage deposit from these ass-holes.
