The Star has an article on a drive on a northern ice road.

The video show a few details of how such a road is built and maintained - interesting to me (who probably never will drive on one).

The ice road may be ready but not all of the new modular homes destined for Attawapiskat have been delivered due to internal feuding over financing of their site preparation.

According to a recent CTV report, some of the homes already on board truck trailers were off-loaded and left behind in Moosonee while the dispute rages on. The latest CBC report describes this situation which gets more and more desperate as the brief ice road season fast draws to a close.

Typical government performance. Federal, provincial, municipal, Conservative, Liberal, NDP, doesn't make any difference. They're all the same.

We pay a lot of taxes for this s***, and the people who need the help don't benefit. Frustrating for us, and tragic for those who need it.
