Minister claims awareness campaign can help stop rail deaths
This after a death on a GO train line Monday night
3 0

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.
