CP apologized, but did not give you the whole truth. The new CEO has cut so many jobs that things have become unsafe. They cut so many Carmen, that now there are hundreds if not thousands of cars not being inspected properly before they leave a train yard. The FRA has fined them hundreds of thousands of dollars for this. A lot of trains derailing can very easily be caused by something missed in a pre departure inspection. He makes the Carmen inspect at 1 minute per car. That's 30 seconds a side. Impossible to find anything wrong at that mind of pace, even fully staffed. So, YES CP is responsible for a lot of the derailments and unsafe practices going on right now.
