Units imperial or metricEdit

Shall we change units to be all in Imperial (mi, ft) instead of metric? The TSB report only uses imperial, and does not convert to metric. That way, we can use the exact figures mentioned. -DePiep (talk) 12:38, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

Both units should be displayed (using {{convert}} with the article consistently displaying either metric or imperial first (presently about 2/3rds show metric first, 1/3rd imperial first) per MOS:UNITS. There is no guidance on that page about which set of units are conventionally used in Canada, is there guidance elsewhere? Thryduulf (talk) 00:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Is what I meant to say: all in one unit, then the other one by conversion & {convert}. IIRC the TSB report had one consistently, but it did not match with the other sources in the page. No time to research this. -DePiep (talk) 00:51, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
All railroads in North America use imperial units as do all the regulatory agencies governing them. The metric units in the article are primarily because Canadian newspapers have converted the figures for their articles. This introduces the possibility of conversion errors and I would suggest we use imperial as the default and have it converted to metric using the template.--Daffydavid (talk) 03:06, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
That's it. The TSB report uses imperial units too. -DePiep (talk) 00:24, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

Update needed re: resumption of oil shipmentsEdit

We have a statement that resumption of oil shipments by rail through the town was expected to begin in 2016. That was 3 years ago; what's the current status? Did this happen or have resident concerns been addressed? 136.159.160.5 (talk) 19:36, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Updates needed: convictionsEdit

The Trial section only reports on the findings of innocence. The guilty verdicts should be there too. https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/finding-of-guilt-and-guilty-pleas-in-lac-megantic-cases-672781193.html
