Six railcars derailed on a partially collapsed bridge over the swollen Bow River in Calgary. Crews successfully emptied five cars that contained petroleum diluent into new cars on an adjacent stable bridge and removed the derailed units. Calgary Mayor Naheed (nah-HEHD') Nenshi (NEHN'-shee) blasted Canadian Pacific Railway, saying responsibility for inspecting the bridge is the railway's. He said he had a lot of questions for the company. (Railways are under federal jurisdiction and Nenshi said that's been a point of contention for municipalities who are powerless to regulate them.)
