The event is a fundraiser for the food bank which will also raise awareness about the challenges facing homeless individuals.

Under transportation law, CP must move all goods including those classified as dangerous goods. Most of what comes through Leduc is grain and crude, and is either headed to or coming from the United States. Should any incidents occur and the city incurs any cost, CP would refund them.LoVecchio highlighted the decrease in train accidents and personal injury by 12 and two per cent respectively. CP is an industry leader when it comes to safety, but human error from the general public or the operators does increase risks. There is a bill currently before the senate to have inward facing cameras in the locomotives. Right now the security system includes a black box and a camera in the head locomotive, but they have no recording features and aren inward facing.In terms of emergency response, CP has plenty of emergency resources and shares them through mutual first aid and with fire departments. They have also created an app that only emergency responders can access which tells them what is on a train or a specific train car, which allows them to plan.When it comes to whistle cessation, there is cessation on the north/south line through Leduc and the city is looking at cessation for the east/west line. Legally they must use the whistle unless there is cessation. CP also developed proximity guidelines for municipalities and developers to consider when building in an area where there are train tracks.After the derailment in Lac M the train car standards have been updated. The type of train cars from the incident will no longer carry flammable liquids. Instead, the cars in use will have a heat blanket. LoVecchio highlighted the Lac M investigation was the most comprehensive and showed that there were numerous contributing factors, not just one.CP maintains the track to a higher speed than what the train is going and they are waiting to hear back from Transport Canada about rail crossing grants. founders Tammy and Ray Bradley updated council at the meeting.The event is now in its fourth year and has raised $100,000 for the Leduc and District Food Bank Snack Attack program, MusiCounts and the Boys and Girls Club of Leduc.
