Transport Canada has concluded CP Rail failed to properly identify safety hazards in the B.C. mountains following a workplace fatality investigation into a train derailment which killed three workers, CBC News has learned.

Andy Dockrell, Dylan Paradis and Daniel Waldenberger-Bulmer were killed on Feb. 4, 2019 when their 2-kilometre long freight train, with failing brakes, ran away down a steep mountain and derailed into a creek near Field, B.C.

The regulator has given CP Rail until the end of this week to fix the problems, according to a notice dated Sept. 23 from Transport Canada, stamped confidential and posted inside CP's Calgary headquarters, which was obtained by CBC News.

Sad event, to many brake failures at that grade location. Wonder if train Fred was working.
