Stockton Ferry Beached by Assiniboine Flooding

Reid Dickie

The last remaining river ferry in southern Manitoba has been beached by the flooding Assiniboine River. The Stockton Ferry carried people and vehicles across the river for decades but now the future of the ferry is in doubt. While the actual ferry was hauled out of the water and rests above the flood level, its cables and infrastructure were badly damaged by the raging waters leaving a tangled mess of wire and metal. I visited the site yesterday and have a short video report on the Stockton Ferry and the aftermath of the river’s flooding.
