CBC is reporting Transport Canada orders CP to change unsafe working conditions 

  

 

Transport Canada has hit Canadian Pacific Railway with an unprecedented order demanding the company change its freight train line-ups and fatigue-management practices on some runs in British Columbia because they pose “an immediate threat to safe railway operations.”
Federal rail safety inspector Todd Horie sent CP a formal letter last Thursday identifying working conditions that he says leave crews unable to get proper sleep or to predict their work schedules.

The situation “creates excessive fatigue … at locations on CP within British Columbia, including but not limited to Roberts Bank, Coquitlam and Kamloops,” Horie writes
