Aarulaaq Quassa: When we have blizzards, the visibility is only few feet at times, so there is going to need plans for weather related emergencies. 

MLA Paul Quassa: We have Blizzards in the winter time and if the phase 2 is approved there would have to be plans if there is an emergancy on the railway during a blizzard

We have very strong winds in the region, there was a mention that trains were going to transport iron ore possibly 5 times per day. Wonders if there has been consideration in the case of blizzards or white outs, if there is something with transports during winter time. Should be considered prior to the beginning of transportation of iron ore.
