Seven cars of coal train derail in Burnaby

Seven cars of a 152-car coal train moving along CN Rail tracks through Vancouver region derailed yesterday in Burnaby. Three of the cars tipped over and spilled their loads, contaminated the waters of a stream flowing into Burnaby Lake where conservationists have worked for decades to restore the water and spawning salmon from the effects of industrial pollution and urbanization. A sign posted on a protective fence at the creek by Fisheries and Oceans Canada says the waterway is considered a sensitive fish and wildlife habitat and that the area is protected. Burnaby Lake connects Still Creek to Brunette River, which flows into the Fraser River.
