The downtown core of Lac Megantic, Quebec, lies in ruins as fire fighters continue to water smoldering rubble Sunday, July 7, after a train derailed and tanker cars carrying crude oil exploded. Saturday's disaster at Lac Megantic is likely to influence the ongoing political debate over shipping petroleum products by rail or by pipeline. (AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Paul Chiasson)
