The Port of Churchill is an important strategic asset for Canada;
The federal Liberal government privatized the port in 1997;
The Harper government dismantled the Canadian Wheat Board, cutting off critical grain supply to the port;
The current owners of the port, OmniTRAX, have unilaterally, without notice, shut down the port laying off dozens of workers and putting the future of the port in jeopardy; and
It is vital to ensure the long-term operation and viability of the Port of Churchill.
We, the undersigned, concerned citizens for the Port of Churchill, call upon the Government of Canada to take immediate action to demand the reopening of the port and that the federal government act immediately to work with the Town of Churchill, Province of Manitoba, and First Nations to bring the Port of Churchill back under Canadian public ownership.
