There’s been no answer as to why the Port of Churchill was shut down by Omni Trax last month. Jim Berschied with the Hudson Bay Route Association says they’ve been meeting with different groups and are looking for a solution to the job cuts and production loss. He says the goal is to educate adding they’ve let them know what the need of the region is from their organization and they’ve worked with municipal organizations to advocate for the Port of Churchill.
Berschied says the Association has met with both the Manitoba and Saskatchewan governments along with the Federal government. He hopes a resolution will come forward soon. He also says support has come from different groups across Manitoba and Saskatchewan.
