Are you concerned about the increased volume of crude oil transported by rail across Canada? Get informed, get involved, and join us in standing up for the safety and well-being of our communities.

 

Safe Rail Communities (SRC) is a national, community-based initiative, started in March 2014 by neighbours in Toronto’s West end.

Responding to the alarming increase in DOT-111 tank cars carrying crude oil on the Canadian Pacific rail line that runs through mid-town Toronto, SRC advocates for greater transparency and safeguards with respect to the transportation of crude oil and other hazardous materials along rail lines throughout Canada.

SRC is committed to raising awareness at local and national levels. SRC seeks to unite rail communities across Canada around this pressing issue.

Currently, SRC is actively calling for more openness and discussion between government, railway companies, and communities around the transportation of crude oil and other hazardous materials along rail lines throughout Canada. Find out how you can help.
