Bruce Campbell is a Canadian author who wrote a recently-published book about the 2013 oil train explosion in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec. The book is titled “The Lac-Mégantic Rail Disaster: Public Betrayal, Justice Denied.” It outlines the regulatory and policy failures that led up to the disaster and the unjust aftermath in which three front-line railroad employees were blamed. Bruce Campbell will discuss the Canadian events and former Albany Common Council member Dominick Calsolaro will provide an Albany-area perspective on oil train hazards. PAUSE and Solidarity Committee of the Capital District are co-sponsors of this event.
