Lake Where The Fish Gather – one year later
Some “stories” On The Lac Megantic Extravaganza (the one year “drill it into the subconscious” remembrance)
“Lac-Mégantic remembers: A town united in grief”
– It was also a ceremony full of symbols — water, flowers and butterflies representing nature’s return
despite the pollution from the disaster, and a toolbox symbolizing the town’s rebuilding.
“Lac-Mégantic residents still suffering ‘indescribable’ grief”
– After the tragedy, he and Juliette, who was nine at the time, had terrible nightmares. He was scared of
another explosion. Orangey-yellow lights and unknown sounds frightened him. Juliette was scared her mother
would burn to death. His sister taught him a trick to feel better.
“My sister told me to think of unicorns — it’ll make you think of things you like, instead of scary things,” he says.
“Lac-Mégantic tragedy made communities ‘open their eyes’ about rail safety”
“Lac-Megantic one year later”
“One year later, Lac-Megantic residents reflect on disaster”
“Lac-Mégantic resident recalls train disaster one week later”
Predictive Programming A Lake Where The Fish Gather
Unstoppable (2010) – With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barreling toward a city, a veteran engineer and a young conductor
race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe.
“Washington’s experienced train conductor, Frank Barnes, has little time to butt heads with newbie engineer Will Colson (Pine)
before an experimental, unmanned train carrying tons of combustible chemicals goes out of control (whoever thought that was a
good idea is getting a pink slip). Barnes and Colson have to race against time and work together in order to prevent the
half-mile-long freight train from crashing into one of the nearby cities or towns.”
“Lac-Megantic tragedy is voted News Story of the Year”
“Lac-Mégantic disaster chosen Canadian News Story of the Year”
What can I say but “Salut a une histoire avec beaucoup de drapeau rouge!”
