WINNIPEG — A northern Manitoba First Nation is considering asking the federal government to send in the military to contain an outbreak, which has infected every resident at a personal care home.

“On Friday it really got out of control,” Opaskwayak Cree Nation Chief Christian Sinclair told CTV news Sunday, describing the situation as an “outbreak within an outbreak.”
