Correction: Regarding oil transported by rail

In an Oct. 11 edition of the Hope Standard (Candidates weigh in on Trans Mountain), a caption incorrectly stated the type of oil which is shipped by rail. What is normally transported by rail, director of SFU’s Resource and Environmental Planning Program Dr. Thomas Gunton stated, is called railbit. Diluted bitumen also known as dilbit is diluted with 30 per cent diluent so it can be pumped through pipelines, whereas railbit does not need to be diluted to the same degree and usually uses around 15 per cent diluent.
