Rail Yard Smell
Last night a friend of ours who is an air quality expert mentioned to us that anywhere petroleum tank cars are stored they emit very strong petroleum odours that are harmful to human health over a prolonged period. That obviously did not sit well with us considering that the rail yard being built right next to us by Cando Contracting Ltd., CN Rail and Imperial Oil Ltd. is upwind. We’ll have to conduct some more research to find out just exactly how harmful these air contaminants might be. All 3 orders of government – municipal, provincial and federal – have responsibilities for human health.
