Mayor Is Confident About Rail Safety

There has been some concern expressed in light of the train disaster in Quebec about how safe rail traffic through the Saint John area is these days.

 Mayor Mel Norton is confident what happened in Lac Magentic last weekend would not take place here. Norton explains Saint John has an excellent safety record with trains over the years which are never parked on inclines.

Rothesay Council isn't as confident as Norton is and wants more information about rail activity through the town with concern over the number of cars and the speed they're travelling at.
