The Kivalliq Chamber of Commerce has sent a letter of support to Churchill Mayor Mike Spence dealing with the ongoing shutdown of the Hudson Bay railway line into Churchill.

In the letter, chamber president John Main of Arviat writes: “Without the railway line in operation, a significant number of Kivalliq businesses are being affected negatively. We now know this from anecdotal accounts, but the data to back up these claims will become available as the railway line shutdown drags on.”

For more on the chamber’s support, please see the Sept. 27 edition of Kivalliq News.
