Union Demands a Coroner's Inquest Following A Train Derailment

A union is saying that they want a coroner’s inquest done following a train derailment that killed one of its members. 

 

Teamsters says that they have written to Manitoba’s Chief medical examiner asking for the inquest as the 38-year-old conductor who lost his life after paramedics weren’t allowed near the site for nine and a half hours. 

 

Teamsters Canada Rail Conference vice-president Roland Hackl says that their hope is that an inquest will shed light on how this incident could have been prevented, and at the very least how to make sure it doesn’t happen again.  

 

The derailment took place on September 15th near Ponton.
