There has been an update on the mysterious silos that appeared in BNSF Manitoba's yard.
Winnipeg ordered Fort Distributors to remove the tanks in mid-November. Fort appealed, apparently to council, and on Tuesday the city council's Property and Development Committee voted to uphold the order to remove them. (earlier article)
Fort's lawyer, former councilor Gord Steeves (he was my councilor and my kids' soccer coach, actually), says they will probably appeal. To whom, I am not sure. It seems likely this will go to court.
I drove by the site on January 16th and I see there is a small building at the base of the tanks now.
