Our partners and friends at CP Rail have reminded us that Rail Safety is up to all of us. With students back in class for the 2016-17 school year, we want to do our part to remind everyone to stay safe.
While statistics of reported crossing collisions & trespassing incidents at the Hardisty yard are not a concern at this time, the Town of Hardisty and Mr. M. LoVecchio (CP Rail Director Government Affairs) are encouraging students and all residents to be safe around all railway operations.
In a letter to Mayor Miller, Mr. LoVecchio also stated that “…with the launch of Pokemon Go, geo-tagged sites have appeared where train operations and related activities occur… [and] in addition to general reminders about choosing the safe route and sticking to it, we are warning kids and parents alike that railway property is a “Pokemon No-Go Zone”.
