CN says train leaking crude following derailment in western Manitoba
Canada
Canadian National Railway says in a statement that 37 cars carrying crude left the tracks early Saturday morning near St-Larare, which is east of the Saskatchewan-Manitoba boundary.

CN says there is “a partial leak” of crude, and that its environmental team is working to clean up the site and protect the environment.

It says there are no reports of injuries or fires, and that it’s still determining how much oil spilled.

St-Lazare is about 50 kilometres from Moosomin, Sask., where conservative leaders have been speaking at a pro-pipeline rally Saturday.
