CHURCHILL, Man. – A ship has arrived in Manitoba’s northern port of Churchill, bringing fuel to heat the town through the winter and also carrying away a train that’s been stranded there since the rail line to the community washed out in the spring.
Churchill mayor Mike Spence says the Nunalik arrived early Sunday and began offloading 2.2 million litres of propane in large cylinders, which were ordered by the Manitoba government.
