Every year more than 2,100 North Americans are killed or seriously injured because of unsafe behavior around tracks and trains – every one of these incidents and deaths are preventable.
We all need to promote a better understanding and knowledge about the risks of being near railroad tracks. The North Vancouver Chamber fully support the efforts of CN to ensure that residents and visitors to our community are safe.
