Defence fund for Lac Megantic train engineer
No word on how much a defence fund has raised on behalf of the train engineer involved in the Lac Megantic derailment.
The Tom Harding Defense Fund was put together by one of the engineer's former co-workers, now based in Albany, New York.
The fund's website says Harding's legal fees have already hit $10,000 eventhough no charges have been laid against him for what happened the night in July that his train became a runaway and derailed.
The website appeals for donations from other railroaders, either on-line or by cheque through the mail.
