Fort William First Nation still waiting for bridge fix

Fort William First Nation bridge burned down two years ago

A northern Ontario First Nation continues to push for the reopening of a bridge that’s been closed for over two years.

CN Rail has not fixed the bridge since it caught fire. That’s left Fort William First Nation with only one other access point.
