#Shame On You CP rail

Since CP Rail massively increased maintenance operations at their Alyth Yard depot in Inglewood, residents living nearby have experienced an unacceptable increase in noise and pollution. A group of residents took their concerns the Canadian Transportation Agency, who ultimately ruled that CP Rail must cease load testing and idling operations at the depot between the hours of 11pm and 7am.

#ShameOnYouCPrail: While the Canadian Transportation Agency has ruled against CP Rail to halt load testing and idling operations between the hours of 11pm and 7am, Inglewood residents still being kept awake.
