Council passes resolution on railway tax, safety

The town of Fort Frances passed a resolution last night that's aimed at creating more equitable railway taxation and raises concerns surrounding rail safety.

The resolution, which received unanimous support from council at Monday's meeting, arose out of the CN Rail derailment near Emo last Tuesday involving 30 cars, seven of which leaked crude oil surrounding the crash area.
