Dist. 1 residents protest train noise

CP encroached on city land
With Canadian Pacific Railroad wanting to make changes to its Pig’s Eye switching yard, nearby residents are hoping to put pressure on the company to reduce squealing brake noise and diesel fumes coming from idling train engines.
Since the railroad has to go through processes with the city, residents are petitioning in hopes of gaining leverage against the rail noise and pollution that some residents living near the switching yard deal with on a daily basis.
