Feds Want Lights Out At 32 N.B. Lighthouses

Department of Fisheries and Ocean's Heritage Lighthouse Protection Act deems "surplus" almost 500 active lighthouses from coast to coast. Lighthouses could soon be sold off, including iconic landmarks like the Swallowtail on Grand Manan, as well as the Courtney Bay breakwater and Point Lepreau lighthouses in the Saint John area. National reporter Stephen Puddicombe tells us the story.
