Another CN Environmental Infraction

Canadian National Railway continues to violate federal environmental legislation. This time, CN has been sentenced to pay $75,000 for spilling a deleterious substance (diesel fuel) into waters frequented by fish.

In January 2009, Environment Canada was notified of a diesel slick near the confluence of Barker Creek and the Fraser River in B.C.  Their investigation confirmed that the source was a fuel pumping station at the CN Rail Thornton Yards.

On March 11, 2011, a B.C. Provincial Court convicted CN of an offence under the federal Fisheries Act. See Daily Commercial News article.
