Oral questions, Rail transport safety, Railway Safety Act

Loi sur la sécurité ferroviaire, Questions orales, Sûreté du transport ferroviaire

Mr. Speaker, rail transportation is crucial to our economy, and provides us with an efficient system of moving people and goods through this great and vast country of ours.

Nothing is more important than rail safety, which is paramount to users, to railway workers, and most of all, to all the communities across Canada that have rail lines passing through them.

Can the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Transport tell us what our government is doing to ensure that Canada has the strictest rail safety standards?

Monsieur le Président, l'infrastructure ferroviaire est essentielle à notre économie et nous offre un système efficace pour déplacer les voyageurs et les biens au sein de notre beau et grand pays.

Rien n'est plus important que la sécurité ferroviaire, qui est primordiale pour les usagers, les travailleurs ferroviaires et, surtout, pour les communautés où passent les chemins de fer partout au Canada.

La secrétaire parlementaire du ministre des Transports peut-elle nous dire ce que nous faisons pour nous assurer que le Canada possède les normes de sécurité ferroviaire les plus élevées?
