Niki Ashton is not happy with the recent announcement from Denver-based OmniTrax that the deal to sell the rail link to Churchill has fallen through.
Ashton spoke to the media following a visit to Churchill, where she singled out both OmniTrax and its owner Pat Broe. She said that their words have been nothing more than a bullying tactic, and that OmniTrax owner Pat Broe is nothing more than a “two-bit Donald Trump wanna-be”.
The local M.P. said that Churchill is “breaking” due to how OmniTrax and the federal government are handling the situation. She added that there is now an increased reliance on the food bank, and that a once proud community has now been reduced to trying to make do with whatever gets donated.
