ASHTON LAUNCHES PETITION TO SAVE PORT OF CHURCHILL
July 28th, 2016 - 11:58am
Ottawa - Niki Ashton MP has launched a national petition calling on the federal government to show leadership in the wake of a devastating announcement of layoffs and the closure of the Port of Churchill.
"People in Churchill and across Manitoba see OmniTRAX's actions as reprehensible. The federal government made decisions that put Churchill at risk. Now it's time for the federal government to show leadership and work with the Town of Churchill, First Nations and the Province of Manitoba to ensure a sustainable future for this strategic port. It's time to bring it under public ownership."
People across the country are encouraged to sign the petition by printing the pdf link available online at http://nikiashton.ndp.ca/save-the-port-of-churchill.
An online petition is expected soon.
You can mail the petition free of charge to the House of Commons at the following address:
