2021 is a big year for Operation Lifesaver (OL) Canada. It marks 40 years since they began their mission to educate Canadians about the risks surrounding railway crossings, tracks and trains.

“Over the past four decades, OL has fostered safety-conscious attitudes toward railways, promoted safe driving skills and encouraged Canadians to think twice before using tracks as a recreation or play area,” said Sarah Mayes, OL’s National Director.

“Our outreach and campaigns―including #STOPTrackTragediesLook. Listen. Live. and #TraintoDrive―have helped to reduce the number of collisions at railway crossings, and prevented needless injuries and deaths from rail trespassing. That’s something we should all be proud of.”
