John Camilleri - Yacht Club Sale Questioned
It's been a few days since the sale of the Royal Cape Breton Yacht Club to Enterprise Cape Breton Corporation. And questions remain about the deal. ECBC paid 280-thousand dollars for the Sydney waterfront property. It says it has no plans for the century-old clubhouse. But the club's commodor says it's his understanding the building will be demolished to make way for future development. Meanwhile, the club's royal charter will be extended to include the new Ben Eoin Marina. ECBC contributed 4-million dollars toward the 4.8-million dollar cost of the project. It all doesn't sit right with John Camilleri. He's a concerned citizen who wrote a letter to the editor in the Cape Breton Post this morning. The CBC's Holly Conners spoke with Mr. Camilleri outside the yacht club earlier today.
