Canada's NDP

Honourable Minister Garneau,

After a fire destroyed a warehouse at the Churchill airport, which is property of Transport Canada, the community and our region is left looking for solutions.

This facility and the assets it contained were of the utmost importance for Churchill and our Northern region. We understand critical equipment has been destroyed and essential cargo space is now gone. The hangar must be rebuilt and the equipment replaced as soon as possible.

Minister Garneau, will you commit to the community that the hangar will be rebuilt and that the destroyed assets will be replaced as soon as possible? I hope to continue working with you and with the community on finding solutions for Churchill.
