Mississauga Train Derailment

On the night of November 10, 1979, a 106-car Canadian Pacific freight train was derailed in at Mavis Road, north of Dundas Street. As a result of the subsequent explosion, when one of the tank cars carrying propane exploded, and because other tank cars were carrying chlorine, the decision was made to evacuate nearby residents in one of the largest peace time evacuations in history.Mississauga.
