CP CEO: an outrage drug-using engineer put back in a locomotive

Canadian Pacific Railway is issuing a court challenge in an effort to block a ruling by an arbitrator who ordered the railway to reinstate a locomotive engineer.

C-P Rail says the employee consumed cocaine ``at a time and of a quantity which could impact his duties.''

Chief executive officer E. Hunter Harrison called the arbitrator's decision ``an outrage.''

He said that, as a railroader, he was ``appalled'' the company would be forced to place the employee back in the cab of a locomotive.
