Did you know that there was a 4 car train derailment of FULL tar sands tanker cars at the Delaware City Refinery over the Memorial Day weekend? Did you read about it in the Delaware News-Journal? Nope, you didn't. The Refinery didn't notify DNREC or the community about the derailment either. They claim there were no releases, but here's the scary part (as if this whole thing isn't terrifying enough), they didn't even have the equipment to upright the cars themselves--they had to get it from out of state! Why isn't this being reported by our paper of record? Why doesn't the Refinery have a plan in place to deal with potential disasters like this? Delaware City, Newark, Bear or any of the towns these trains roll through are at risk for being another mayflower, AR or Parkers Prairie, MN.Plans? Preparations?
What we have right now is the government THEY pay for, with their campaign contributions to Republicans and Democrats alike.
