    Extra brakes ordered on CN trains in B.C. after fatal derailment - Canadian Press, UTU Canada Railway News
    ===============

    Faulkner a prophet who needn't have been martyred
    - By FRANK BUCHOLTZ, Kamloops This Week,  Canada
    Faulkner and other employees have maintained - ever since BC Rail was sold to CN - that the new owner needed to listen to employees to find out how best to operate the line.

    However, CN quickly dismissed many of those employees and changed operating patterns.

    It's too bad two men had to die first.
