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 and arrest. Engineer Tom Harding has been freed on $15,000 bail.

Tom faces 47 counts of criminal negligence causing death, one count for each person who was killed when a runaway train derailed and exploded in the center of Lac-Megantic last July. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.

Please help Tom by making a donation to this fund. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
