M.V. Miner Update

Amanda MacDougall

People who live in Main-a-Dieu have put something different on their Christmas List this year.

They would like to see the derelict ship M.V. Miner removed from nearby Scaterie Island once and for all.

Efforts last year by a New York company to cut it up and sell it for scrap failed.

Provincial Transportation Minister Geoff MacLellan told the legislature last week a tender call will go out early in the new year for the work and he's committed to seeing it completed.

Amanda MacDougall is Vice President of the Main-a-Dieu Community Development Association which has been lobbying both levels of government on the issue.
