Image of a 2006 BC Rail - CN - Train Wreck
A burned locomotive lies below the tracks near Lillooet after a 2006 derailment that killed two crew members, Don Faulkner and Tom Dodd. The Transportation Safety Board investigation showed that BC Rail operated on the mountainous route with dynamic brakes, but when CN Rail took over after a controversial sale in 2003, it used locomotives without that brake system.
BC Rail trainmen understood the uniquely challenging terrain of British Columbia and limited BCR trains to about 100 cars. CN were accustomed to flatland trackage and tried to cut costs by increasing the length to 150 cars.
BASI IS A CROOK. PLAIN AND SIMPLE. HE SAYS HE SLEEPS WITH A CLEAN CONSCIENCE. THATS BECAUSE HE HAS NONE.
1> Basi Boys stacked a nomination meeting so a friend of Campbell could win a nomination. A forensic accountant showed many of the memberships in the riding were phantom
2> Dave Basi and Bob Virk admit they leaked confidential documents to Pilothouse, a lobbying firm of the B.C. Rail bidders, OmniTrax.
3>Basi admits taking bribe from Omitax
4>Basi admits taking bribe from Sun River developers, says can get propety out of ALR, does nothing, but still takes loot
5> Reason police wire tapped BASI was because of Drug Investigation of Jas Bains, Basi's cousin. Bains made numerous phone calls to Basi. Bains subsequently found guilty of importing cocaine, sentenced to 9 yrs in jail.
Dave Basi sleeps with a clean conscience, even though he and his circle of friends have cost us 18 Million dollars in Legal Fees, even thgough admits guilt, is saved harmless.
Something is wrong here ...!
