Why not give this to Northern Ontario Transportation Commission to service Hudson Bay as a search and rescue and also as a distribution vessel of bio mass to all the communities in the region of Hudson bay.

Now how are you planning to ship all the Wood Pellets to the towns in the North.. Suggestion People ... It can be transferred to the Province of Ontario so that it can be used in Hudson Bay as a search and rescue vessel and also as a supply ship to the small towns all along the Hudson Bay Region. The North could use a Port in Moosonne to serve that remote area no need to waste money. Simply re distribute the goods with in the country to make it better. from federal to provincial working together with the goods we have. Let be proactive and Sent this to the Liberal, the conservative, the NDP and lets get it done as a social pro active and positive effort to make Ontario's North represented. no need to cry over split milk as long as there is enough to feed everyone. See her in action Tracy the Canadian Coast guard ship.http://www 2017/02/15/9635 8/96358

Ottawa congratulate financial support for biomass sector. We are positive and especially the use of renewable biomass from residues and waste without logging of forests. We support these actions with technologies and equipment.
