CALGARY — A Canadian Pacific freight train parked on a frigid night in the Rocky Mountains began to move on its own before a derailment that killed three workers and sent 99 grain cars and two locomotives hurling off the track.
The Transportation Safety Board says the westbound train had been parked on a grade with its air brakes applied for two hours near Field, B.C., just west of the Alberta-B.C. boundary, when it started rolling. The handbrakes were never applied.
OTTAWA — A trio of young people in Calgary are challenging Canada’s iconic coffee chain to use its popular contest to get Canadians to kick their cup addiction.
Twelve-year-olds Mya Chau and Eve Helman, and 16-year-old Ben Duthie, have nearly 105,000 signatures on a change.org petition asking Tim Hortons to replace its existing disposable coffee cups with a compostable version, or at least one that can be recycled everywhere in Canada.
