The Manitoba NDP has filed a complaint against Omnitrax Canada over their failure to repair damage from flooding to its northern railway. The railway connects Churchill to the rest of Manitoba and has been cut off since last May.
In Winnipeg NDP leader Wab Kinew said the Canadian Transportation Agency will hear the complaint against Omnitrax with a hearing planned for February 15th. If the Agency sides with the NDP Omnitrax could be forced to repair the rail line so service can resume.
The Canadian Transportation Agency is an independent government regulator that makes rulings on licences and complaints relating to fares and services of transportation providers in Canada.
