A long-rumoured rival group of northern Manitoba communities keen to take a run at acquiring the Hudson Bay Railway and Port of Churchill from Omnitrax Canada has finally made its presence known publicly.
Unlike the “consortium” that Omnitrax is currently talking to, this new group, called One North, appears to have broad representation from both municipalities and First Nations of northern Manitoba all along the rail line as well as the Kivaliq region of Nunavut.
In fact, membership in the Missinippi Rail Consortium, with whom Omnitrax has a memorandum of understanding to negotiate the sale of its assets, may now by down to just one community — the Mathias Colomb Cree Nation.
