Broken ferry on Shoal Lake 40 leaves community in limbo


A barge that acts a lifeline for a First Nation without access to clean drinking water is broken leaving the community in limbo.

Shoal Lake 40 First Nation's barge broke down 11 days ago.

Linda Redsky, a Shoal Lake 40 band member, said people in the community are now having to travel by boat to get out of the community, but the boat has no life jackets and only runs during the day.
