The NDP Has Called on the Pallister Government to Ensure the Churchill Rail Line is Repaired Before Winter.

 

Flin Flon MLA and NDP Labor Critic Tom Lindsey says Premier Brian Pallister must stop wasting time and start working immediately with the federal government, Churchill and surrounding communities to take over the rail line to Churchill and repair it before winter makes construction impossible.

             

Lindsey says Omnitrax is refusing to fix the line and has made it clear it wants to pull out of Manitoba adding the Premier should stand with the people of northern Manitoba.  He explains Omnitrax has said there is a very narrow window left this summer for repairs to be completed if the line is to carry trains through the winter.  He adds if the Premier and the federal government continue to pass the buck, Churchill and other northern communities will face economic disaster and residents will face personal hardships as supplies become increasingly expensive and difficult to get.
