It has become increasingly evident that Omnitrax is not going to repair the track to Churchill. At least, not without government (taxpayer) assistance. Maybe it’s time for the government to expropriate the track and Omnitrax holdings and operate everything as a Manitoba provincial railway.

Norway has a much higher standard of living and quality of life than does Canada. It also has more kilometres of railroad than of roads. Shipping
