BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Canadian Pacific lone holdout to settlement

Reprints

Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. continues to fight a settlement for victims of the July 6, 2013, crash, explosion and fire in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, that killed 47 people and devastated much of the town.

Dozens of companies linked to the crash involving tank cars carrying Bakken crude oil agreed in June to a settlement of $430 million for the victims of the crash.

Canadian Pacific, which had transported the tank cars before the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd. took over, was the only company that did not agree to the settlement.

Last month, a Quebec Superior Court judge rejected Canadian Pacific's objections to the settlement, which the railway appealed in late July.
