Red Bay May Become World Heritage Site
L’Anse aux Meadows and Gros Morne are on the map as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. And Red Bay in southern Labrador is now one step closer to being granted that same distinction. The 16th century Basque whaling station at Red Bay is a National Historic Site. Parks Canada and the town have been working for years to have Red Bay receive the World designation.

Trudy Taylor-Walsh is manager of national historic sites and visitor experience for the Western Newfoundland and Labrador Field Unit of Parks Canada. She joins us live on the line.
