Tom Harding Defense Fund




The Tom Harding Defense Website was created to assist Tom Harding - the locomotive engineer at the center of the July 6,2013 LacMegantic Quebec derailment - with legal fees that have been incurred since his arrest on May 12 2014. He was freed on $15,000 bail. Tom faces 47 counts of criminal negligence causing death, one count for each person who was killed when a runnaway train derailed and exploded in the center of LacMegantic destroying the town center. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.
