WINNIPEG – Tourism is Churchill is really hurting and it’s only going to get worse. It’s almost whale watching season up there but with no northern travel allowed, there won’t be much of that happening. Mayor Michael Spence says while he understands why the the non-essential travel ban was necessary, it’s going to be very hard on the local economy which relies heavily on tourist traffic. He’s expecting government support soon for the tourism industry.
