- Heartwarming to read of the convoy of trucks from Muskrat Dam First Nation carrying wood for Bearskin Lake. Bearskin Lake is in lockdown, a declared state of emergency with dozens of COVID-19 cases. Wind chill values near minus 45 were expected yesterday. The community is only accessible by air year-round and a seasonal winter road from Windigo Lake north through Muskrat Dam. In addition, Tania Cameron ([email protected]) has reached out to the community to get a shopping list and is accepting donations to fund groceries. Fresh Market Foods in Sioux Lookout is using their subsidy to cover freight.
