Save the Port of Churchill

ASHTON LAUNCHES PETITION TO SAVE PORT OF CHURCHILL

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:
