Interest is Being Shown in the Rail Line to Churchill.

 

The federal government is hinting there may soon be a takeover deal for the broken rail line to Churchill in northern Manitoba.

Energy Minister Jim Carr says Toronto-based Fairfax Financial Holdings has expressed interest in partnering with two northern Manitoba groups Missinippi Rail and One North that hope to take over the Hudson Bay Railway and Port of Churchill.

Fairfax president Paul Rivett says he is optimistic about the prospects of northern gateways.

Part of the rail line flooded out last spring, hurting the region's tourist industry and driving up prices for food and fuel.
