13:45 EDTCPCanada introduces legislation to enhance crude-by-rail safety, accountability
The Honourable Lisa Raitt, Minister of Transport, introduced legislation in the House of Commons that will enhance railway safety and make the rail industry and crude oil shippers more accountable to Canadians. The new Safe and Accountable Rail Act proposes amendments to the Canada Transportation Act and Railway Safety Act. Changes include a new liability and compensation regime for federally regulated railways, including minimum insurance requirements; a compensation fund financed by levies on crude oil shippers; increased information-sharing provisions; and stronger oversight powers for the Minister and Transport Canada inspectors. The new liability and compensation regime will be consistent with those the Government has introduced for other modes of transport, such as marine tankers and oil pipelines. It is based on the “polluter pays” principle and makes railways and shippers responsible for the cost of accidents, protecting taxpayers and communities by ensuring that adequate resources are available for compensation if an accident were to occur. Proposed amendments to the Railway Safety Act will broaden the powers of the Minister and inspectors to order railway companies and others to take specified measures or stop any activity deemed necessary for safe railway operations. The proposed amendments will also create new regulation- making powers requiring railway companies to share information with municipalities. These changes are part of the Government’s commitment to strengthen oversight and increase collaboration between communities and the rail industry, addressing issues raised in the Transportation Safety Board’s final report on the Lac-Mégantic derailment as well as concerns of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. Publicly traded companies in the space include CSX (CSX), Canadian National (CNI), Canadian Pacific (CP), Genesee & Wyoming (GWR), Kansas City Southern (KSU), Norfolk Southern (NSC) and Union Pacific (UNP).

13:44 EDTCPCP disappointed by failed talks with Teamsters Canada Rail Conference
Canadian Pacific is disappointed to announce that negotiations with Teamsters Canada Rail Conference-Running Trades, TCRC, have broken down without an agreement. As a result, the TCRC have indicated they will strike as of 12:01 a.m. on February 15. TCRC represents CP's approximately 3,000 active locomotive engineers and conductors. CP proposed thoughtful, compelling and fair options including wage increases and improved benefit plans. Furthermore, CP proposed changes to work schedules to improve the quality of life for engineers and conductors. TCRC leadership claims that lack of time off is at the heart of its reluctance to negotiate, yet 72% of all engineers and conductors do not take the time off they are entitled to. Furthermore, 60% of the conductors and engineers at CP make between $80,000 and $160,000, while working an average of 31 to 35 hours a week. "We have wanted to make a deal for more than a year, and have been presenting the TCRC leadership with dynamic options and choices to improve the quality of life for employees while driving efficiencies in our business," said E. Hunter Harrison, CP's Chief Executive Officer. "Our conductors and engineers have plenty of options for time off, but the vast majority don't take full advantage of those opportunities. We want to implement a model that allows us to properly schedule crews while maintaining the highest standards of safe railroading" While CP would have preferred a negotiated settlement, at the urging of the Minister of Labour, the railroad agreed to immediate mediation and arbitration to avoid a work disruption. Unfortunately, the TCRC did not agree.
