In Committee from the House of Commons - Transport

Transport, Infrastructure and Communities (April 24, 2012)

Federal transport minister Denis Lebel appeared before the committee to discuss Bill S-4, legislation to improve railway safety in Canada. The minister outlined some of the act's key amendments, such as increasing regulatory authority, introducing safety-based operating certificates, and raising judicial penalties. Luc Bourdon, director general of rail safety, responded to questions on the issue of installing voice recording devices in trains and regulations for railway crossings.

The bill received support from all parties, and committee members proceeded to clause-by-clause consideration and adoption of the bill after hearing from the witnesses.
