EDMONTON , AB - Environment Canada and Fisheries and Oceans Canada have laid three charges against the Canadian National Railway Company (CN) under the federal Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994 and the federal Fisheries Act.

CN is charged with one count under subsection 5.1(1) of the Migratory Birds Convention Act, 1994, for allegedly depositing a substance harmful to migratory birds in water frequented by birds, and two charges under subsection 35(1) of the Fisheries Act for the alleged harmful alteration, disruption, or destruction of fish habitat.

These charges stem from an investigation into the CN train derailment at Wabamun Lake on August 3, 2005 and the release of Bunker C oil into the lake.

First court appearance is set for March 19, 2008, in Provincial Court in Edmonton, Alberta.
