Gov’t will pour $9M into Churchill scientific facility

Manitoba came through Wednesday with the final piece in a western Canadian partnership for a $32 million Marine Observatory in Churchill to study arctic oil spills.

“Everybody’s provided their funding, the project’s moving forward,” said the lead scientist on the project, David Barber, a University of Manitoba professor and Canada Research Chair in Arctic systems science. “We just need to finalize who’s going to build the thing. It’ll be in the next 12 months.”
