    Another lesson of the disaster is that we need public ownership and control of the railways. And not just the little money-losing ones like MM&A.

    Railways are an important part of a bi-national green transportation strategy, but they can’t be if they are run only for private profit.

    Railways can also help fulfil our needs for social and economic justice. They can be a lifeline to remote and aboriginal communities, who only get rail service now if there’s an iron mine or oil field in their vicinity, to make it profitable.
