Canadian Oil Train Derailment

This July 6, 2013 file photo shows smoke rising from railway cars that were carrying crude oil after derailing in downtown Lac Megantic, Quebec, Canada. The Obama administration has delayed by nearly a year a plan to boost safety standards for the type of rail car involved in a fiery explosion that killed at least 47 people in Canada this month. Officials began work on the rule more than a year before an oil train derailed and exploded in Quebec July 6, but the rule was never published. (AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Paul Chiasson, File)
