Davie Shipyard shut out of major shipbuilding contracts
Three major Canadian shipyards were bidding for two major shipbuilding contracts announced Wednesday afternoon. As the winning bids were announced, Halifax's Irving and Vancouver's Seaspan shipyards celebrated, while Davie Shipyard in Levis was left empty handed.
What does this mean for the embattled shipyard? To explain what's next, John Dewar is vice-president of Strategic Services of Upper Lakes Marine and one of the owners of Davie Canada. Ann Gingras, the regional president of the CSN which represents the Davie workers, also tells us about the impact on workers.
