A group of us attended the forum in Martinez on February 26. We were privileged and moved to hear Marlaine Savard, spokesperson for a citizens’ group in the region of Lac-Mégantic, Québec. She shared in a very personal way about the crude oil by rail conflagration in her small town of Lac Megantic in 2013. A crude oil train derailed and killed 47 people and devastated their downtown. Thank you to Constance Beutel for filming her story.
