Tom Harding Defense Fund




The Tom Harding Defense Website was created to assist the locomotive engineer at the center of the Lac-Megantic, Quebec derailment with legal fees that have been incurred as a result of the ongoing investigation. At this point his lawyer's fee is approaching $10,000. If our railroad family could band together, we could help this railroader in a big way. Even if you could give just the price of a cup of coffee it would be a great help.

The Tom Harding Defense Fund is a website inspired by a former coworker at Canadian Pacific Railway and created by railroad employees in the Albany, NY area. In the unlikely event we receive more than the cost of the defense,funds will be donated to Tom Harding.
