Petition to the Government of Canada
The derailment of Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) Train 301, that cost the lives of Andy Dockrell, Dylan Paradis and Daniel Waldenberger-Bulmer on February 4, 2019, should and could have been avoided;
The CP investigation has led to deeply concerning allegations and a call for an independent criminal investigation;
The handling of the investigation has raised major concerns about the ongoing role of the railway police forces;
The government of Canada through the department of Transport and the department of Public Safety have failed to ask the RCMP to launch a full and independent investigation on the accident; and
The safety of rail workers, who are essential workers, is at stake and the families of those who perished deserve answers.
We, the undersigned, Citizens of Canada, call upon the Government of Canada to launch a full and independent criminal investigation into the deadly derailment of CP Train 301.
