Feds announce $10 million for N.B. harbour improvements, transfer projects

The federal government has announced $10 million for small craft harbour improvements and transfer projects along the eastern shore of New Brunswick. 

Beauséjour MP Dominic Leblanc, also Minister of Intergovernmental and Northern Affairs and Internal Trade, says investing in local small craft harbours helps not just the commercial fishing industry but communities as a whole.

A number of harbours have been identified for improvements, including wharf reconstruction at Richibucto, and channel dredging in several areas such as Cap-de-Saint-Louis and Cap-Lumière.
