CN says train leaking crude following derailment in western Manitoba

ST-LAZARE, Man. – A train carrying oil has derailed and is leaking in Manitoba.

Canadian National Railway says in a statement that 37 cars carrying crude left the tracks early Saturday morning near St-Larare, which is east of the Saskatchewan-Manitoba boundary.

CN says there is “a partial leak” of crude, and that its environmental team is working to clean up the site and protect the environment.

It says there are no reports of injuries or fires, and that it’s still determining how much oil spilled.

St-Lazare is about 50 kilometres from Moosomin, Sask., where conservative leaders have been speaking at a pro-pipeline rally Saturday.

Supporters of pipelines argue that shipping oil by pipeline is safer than by rail.
