Lac Megantic trial

The engineer who was driving the train that exploded in Lac Megantic in 2013 wants to prove his innocense.

The lawyer for Tom Harding is dropping his motion to have a stay of proceedings in the case. He says Harding wants a trial to give his verson of events and show he did not commit criminal negligence.

He and two other men have been charged with 47 counts of criminal negligence causing death for the victims of the fiery accident that killed 47 people.
