Churchill Keewatinook Aski Member of Parliament Niki Ashton says there can be few better examples of perseverance and resilience than Churchill. She says the news that grain is once again being shipped through the Bay Link and the Port of Churchill is the latest example of this. She explains when the previous owners shut it down the people of Churchill and all along the Bay Line did not give up. There was so much at stake as the lifeline to the community, employment, access for residents and tourists alike as well as its historic legacy since being opened in 1929.
Ashton adds it’s a port and rail line that has huge potential with the opening up of Arctic shipping.
