Three cars of a C-N Rail freight train that derailed Tuesday evening in northwestern New Brunswick are still burning.

Guy Laporte says investigators have found a cracked wheel and a broken rail.
C-N believes a wheel and axle failure were to blame. (13)

Conservative critic Ian Wishart says the Manitoba government needs to release a report into a five-year-old's death as a matter of public safety.
The province has decided to wait until two byelections are held before releasing a report into how social services failed to protect Phoenix Sinclair.
She was tortured and beaten before being murdered by her mother and stepfather.
Her death went undiscovered for months.
Wishart says there are almost 10-thousand Manitoba children in care, and their safety is more important than byelections. (13)
