Manitoba May Ship Gas Through Churchill

Shipping Gas Through Churchill

WINNIPEG - The province is looking at shipping liquified natural gas on the Hudson Bay Railway and through the Port of Churchill.

In August, the provincial and federal governments announced $147 million to turn the rail line into a modern trade corridor to Canada's only Arctic port.

The railway is owned and operated by Arctic Gateway Group, a partnership of 41 First Nations and rail line communities.

Premier Heather Stefanson says her government has been in discussions with Saskatchewan and Alberta about their interest in using the railway and port to move liquefied natural gas.
