Quebec shipyard loses ferry maintenance contract
For years, Groupe Maritime Verreault in Les Méchins has done the maintenance on the Camille-Marcoux ferry, that runs between Baie-Comeau and Matane. But now, the provincial ferry authority, the STQ, has awarded the $2 million contract to the Irving Shipyards in Nova Scotia. STQ officials say Irving under-bid Verreault by $300 thousand.
Susan speaks with Denise Verreault about why she believes the contract should have stayed in Quebec.
