We commend Airdrie City council for deciding not to support three Calgary Regional Partnership (CRP) decision items to be considered at an upcoming meeting of the 14-municipality organization. (See story on pages 1 and 2).
We are glad to see the immediate implementation of Transport Canada’s new regulations for trains that run through municipalities. (See story on page 4). We think reducing the speed of trains, limiting the kinds of tanks that can carry dangerous goods, requiring emergency response assistance plans...
