EDMUNDSTON, N.B. - The mayor of Edmundston, N.B., is questioning CN's maintenance budget after a train carrying butane derailed in his northern New Brunswick community.
Cyrille Simard says with two derailments in less than three weeks in the province, he'd like to know if CN (TSX:CNR) is spending enough to keep the tracks safe.
"Hopefully it's just a coincidence, but we have to ask, 'Do we maintain our railway in Eastern Canada in the same way we do in Central and Western Canada?'" Simard said Monday, one day after the derailment.
