|Unseasonable cold delays western Manitoba harvest – Losses in the millions

“The cereal crops have been hit the hardest, with wheat, barley and oats all suffering.”
7 Oct 2018 – “The brutally cold and snowy weather that hit Manitoba during harvest time will likely cost farmers millions of dollars, according to Keystone Agricultural Producers.”
“When we start adding the acres and what the potential loss is, you know, this could get into the millions easily,” warned farm policy and lobby organisation president Bill Campbell.
“Farmers who live in Alberta, near Edmonton, may be used to dealing with snow storms at harvest time,” said Brandon grain farmer Roger Lepp, “but not those in southwestern Manitoba.
“We’re not really quite accustomed to this, so I wouldn’t be surprised if some guys have crops that get left out all winter.
The weather in western Manitoba has been unseasonably cold and the next few days look to continue that pattern.
Canada – “Extreme” sea ice prevents crucial deliveries to isolated communities

Early arrival of sea ice
Authorities in Canada’s Arctic north are scrambling to transport critical supplies to three communities – Paulatuk, Kugluktuk and Cambridge Bay – after the early arrival of sea ice prevented delivery barges from reaching the region.
The three isolated communities, with a combined population of nearly 3,000, have been unable to receive shipments of food, fuel and lumber after ice sealed off the Amundsen Gulf.
The government plans to airlift nearly 600,000 litres of diesel fuel to ensure sufficient reserves to weather the bitterly cold winter. The operation is expected to involve 50 to 60 flights.
“This is absolute ridiculous,” said Joh Holland, a municipal representative from Paulatuk. “We’ve got people waiting for food. We’ve got hunters waiting for vehicles.”
Ice so extreme even the icebreaker couldn’t get through
The ice has been described by officials as “extreme.” Even the Canadian coast guard’s largest icebreaker in the region – the Louis St Laurent – was unable to help break open a channel for the barges.
In Paulatuk, the shelves of the grocery store are quickly becoming bare as nonperishable items like flour quickly disappear.
