Mike LoVecchio, director of government affairs with Canadian Pacific, addresses executive committee with information on CP's operations safety within the community at the March 17, 2014 meeting.
Moose Jaw is an “extremely important terminal” for Canadian Pacific (CP), according to Mike LoVecchio, director of government affairs with CP.
“This is a terminal of national significance,” he said. “It is the proximity to the United States that makes this terminal unique and vital.”
He made a presentation to executive committee at Monday’s meeting regarding operations safety in the community. It was received and filed.
LoVecchio said CP has seen a “significant” decrease in safety incidences, with a 76 per cent reduction in the last three decades. The movement of dangerous goods consists of five per cent of all goods CP moves.
While 99.997 per cent of those reach their destination without any type of incident, he said CP is working to reduce the number of incidents even further.
