Lac-Mégantic Memorial Rally

Mothers Out Front supporters will gather to name and mourn the 47 victims of the 2013 Bakken train oil derailment in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec.

The Toronto Star recently stated that apart from war, the destruction from this derailment and explosion was unprecedented in Canadian history - 30 buildings, about half the downtown, were destroyed, and most of the remainder are too contaminated to allow to stand.

The memorial rally calls attention to the tragic consequences of Bakken oil trains, which run daily through the Rochester area. There have been 11 explosive derailments in North America since 2013, including the most recent one on June 3, 2016 in Mosier, Oregon. The Fire Chief there has called shipping Bakken Crude oil by rail “insane.”
