likes this now has a thread on what looks like one of the bigger hoaxes to hit Canada in recent memory. Some great posts I’ll highlight here:

as firefighters continue to spray derailed tanker cars. A runaway train derailed Saturday causing explosions of railway cars carrying crude oil and destroyed part of the downtown area of Lac Megantic.”
