Omnitrax Canada announced on Aug. 15 that they would no longer pursue plans to ship crude oil across its northern rail line to the port of Churchill on Hudson Bay. The announcement came after another derailment in northern Manitoba. Omnitrax Canada president Merv Tweed said the company is choosing to focus on the grain market instead.

"Northern Manitobans and Wilderness Committee members are ecstatic today, as this risky oil-by-rail plan has been shelved," said Eric Reder, Manitoba Campaign Director for the Wilderness Committee.
