The legal battle between Ottawa and OmniTrax isn't the only one that the Denver-based company will be fighting.

 

Recently, Manitoba NDP leader Wab Kinew announced that his party has filed a complaint with the Canadian Transportation Agency over OmniTraxs' failure to repair the rail line to Churchill.

 

Kinew, speaking in Winnipeg late last week, said that getting the rail line back is the number one issue for the people of issue, and that by filing the complaint, it shows that the party is taking concrete action to get the northern town reconnected with the rest of the province. He added that he NDP want to "do right" by the people of Churchill.

 

Ron Schuler, the Provincial Minister of Infrastructure, says that the move is just one to get attention. He added that making headlines in the media does nothing to resolve the issue, and that the government believes in real solutions.

 

The NDP complaint was originally opened back in October.
