It has turned out that there was no need for the Wuxi China Expatdom Foreign Legion to build a canal from Churchill to Lake Winnipeg . Admiral Lloyd Bridges, at Churchill, was able to befriend a local aboriginal guide named Mel who showed him the way to Lake Winnipeg by river.
Said Bridges, in an interview with Wuxi Now!: "Mel possesses an intimate knowledge of the waterway of Northern Manitoba. When I had told him of my plan to build a canal to Lake Winnipeg, he laughed and said it wasn’t necessary — there were rivers that could get the WCERN Aircraft Carrier Fred Astaire to Lake Winnipeg, "no problem!" We promised him to give him a million dollars if he would be our guide. However, he wanted to be our guide for free when he learned that we were working for Gorzo the Mighty. Gorzo, is a good friend of Mel’s local Indian band, having already promised to recognize the territory, of their land claim with the Canadian government, as a sovereign country. Thanks to Mel, we are now cruising in Lake Winnipeg. We will build the Gorzo Canal through the Interlake region to get to Lake Manitoba — but this is to satisfy our Foreign Legionaires who have been itching at the bit to build a canal. At Sandy Bay on the west coast of Lake Manitoba, we will build the Ayira Canal to CFB Shilo to meet up with Gorzo the Mighty, Harry Callahan, and Fred Minkleman."
