M/V Miner discussed in Ottawa

A delegation of Nova Scotia politicians left Ottawa disappointed yesterday.

The premier and two Cape Breton MLA's want the federal government to help move a derelict bulk carrier that is grounded off Scaterie Island. They met with the federal minister of state for transport.

Geoff MacLellan is the MLA for Glace Bay. He says the various government departments are bogged down with questions of legislation, insurance and liability. He's frustrated there's still no firm plan for removing the vessel.

 

Wendy caught up with MacLellan on his way home to Nova Scotia.
