From Cochrane you can catch the Northland train to Moosonee, the so-called Polar Bear express. Good for a tourist marketing tie-in I suppose. Chimo is an Inuktitut word meaning 'welcome'. The train does not go anywhere near the Inuit. Lots of good Cree folk live up there, and a few polar bears. But reality does not matter in branding.
