Funding for government lapses as short-term spending bill stalls in the Senate

Do it: Kayak with beluga whales

Here’s a vacation idea. Up to 3,000 beluga whales spend their summers near Churchill, Manitoba, on Hudson Bay. You can paddle with them on the bay through tours at Churchill. How to get there? Drive to Winnipeg and take the train, VIA Rail Canada, from Winnipeg to Churchill. You’ll be riding the “Muskeg Express.” Search the web for more information.
