The July 6, 2013 Lac-M?gantic rail disaster is a tragedy unparalleled in Canadian history. It resulted in major loss of life, massive environmental destruction and the evisceration of a small Quebec town. Blame landed squarely on the shoulders of three front-line employees of the Montreal, Maine, and Atlantic Railway Company. But a jury acquitted them.
Who did cause this disaster? And how could it happen?
In this book, Bruce Campell uncovers the truth about Lac-M?gantic. He has interviewed many of the key players. He has researched the corporate executives and the companies involved. He delved into the complex world of transport regulation in Canada. And he attended the trials of the three accused.
Lac-M?gantic is the story of a rail industry writing its own rules, a booming US oil industry based on fracking fighting any obstacles to selling their dangerous product, and a rogue US railway operator cutting corners to make his fortune.
At another level the story is about a federal government blinded by its own free market ideology, fixated on making Canada an energy superpower, and compliant bureaucrats failing to protect the public interest.
At the heart of this story is a small, tight-knit community torn apart and struggling to recover. There is unimaginable loss, broken lives and families, and individual and collective trauma. But there is also healing, solidarity, commemoration, remembrance and the determination to rebuild and transcend.
This is a story that had to be told, one which could be written only by a writer with the research and investigative skills and deep background understanding that Bruce Campbell brings to this book.
