Minister claims awareness campaign can help stop rail deaths

This after a death on a GO train line Monday night

If you think politicians have a concrete plan in place to prevent deaths on GO train tracks like we saw Monday night at Dundas and Sterling, you're wrong.

A male victim died after being struck by a GO Train and witnesses say they saw boys playing in the vicinity beforehand.

When asked about changes that could be made around train tracks in the province, the Transportation Minister would only say they need to push their rail safety awareness campaign.

Steven Del Duca gave no indication that the province or Metrolinx are looking at installing barriers in areas that are easily accessible.

Del Duca couldn't offer much in terms of this death, underlining there are still too many unanswered questions.

    Seriously, how much awareness do you need to STAY AWAY FROM THE FREAKIN' TRAIN!

    Maybe the nanny state should pass a law saying helmuts are mandatory within 20 feet of a train teack. then hire 2,000 enforcement officers with access to public pensions.

    that should solve it just like every thing else the Liberals fucked up for the last 10 years!

    Let Darwinism take it's course. Sorry it's sad but true, Train vs. Human, Train wins every time.
