The Town of The Pas has lost a fair amount of revenue with the ongoing situation with the Hudson Bay Railway not being repaired. This is mainly due to the fact that The Pas once had the ability to ship goods by train to places in Northern Canada over the years.
Jim Berscheid from The Hudson Bay Route Association says they are devoting a lot of effort to resolve this issue and they want to get the bay line open again and the port up and running because there are a lot of businesses that want to utilize the port. Berscheid is very optimistic that they will see some movement in the near future due to a large amount of interest in using the port.
He went on to say that The Hudson Bay Route Association will be having a social evening on April 4th followed by their annual general meeting on April 5th here in The Pas at the Kikiwak Inn and the AGM will give people and municipal representatives the chance to hear presentations and talk about the ongoing issues with the railway and the Port of Churchill.
