Hamilton parks boss: Have to balance scenic view and erosion control at lookout points "Looks to me there are more than a few mature trees blocking the view. There are many more locations where you can get an unobstructed view of the lower city, with free parking. Clearing away the vegetation may help, as long as no erosion takes place."

What's coming down the track?
As the investigation into the Lac Megantic disaster continues, the transportation of hazardous material by train and emergency response to accidents is never far from the minds of those who live near rail lines. In the aftermath of the deadly derailment, the federal government started to require rail companies to report on the dangerous goods they carry each year. The Transportation Safety Board of Canada has also recommended improvements to commonly used tankers which are considered to be unsafe. Minister of Transport Lisa Raitt has until spring to respond to the board’s recommendations. Trains containing oil and other hazardous materials travel through Hamilton’s residential, business and conservation areas more than 20 times a day, and nearby residents want to know what is being done to improve safety and prevent catastrophic incidents. They want to know what is coming down the track.
