Re:  Harper urges voters to avoid 'risk' of NDP or Liberals in power, Mark Kennedy, July 4, 2015

Stephen Harper may campaign on fears of terrorists hiding under every Canadian rock, but his Conservative government failed to notice a 28,000 per cent increase in train transport of flammable oil with devastating consequences to the people of Lac Megantic where 47 people died in a horrific explosion. The Harper government cut its transportation inspection budget and relied increasingly on self-regulation by railway companies who were willing to cut corners for extra profit. To ensure safety of Canadians from train, tanker and other environmental catastrophes, we need a Prime Minister who is not wedded to the oil patch and who understands the most probable risks that threaten the lives and welfare of Canadians.

Lac Megantic: Oil shipments by rail have increased 28,000 per cent since 2009

A whopping 28,000 per cent increase in the amount of oil shipped by rail over the past five years is coming under the microscope following the deadly rail blast in Quebec.
Julian said the Harper government has largely abandoned railway inspection, imposing as much as $3 million in cuts, and allowed the industry to monitor itself.
