St. John’s Maritime Rescue Sub-centre to Reopen, CBC reporting

CBC is reporting that federal Fisheries Minister Hunter Tootoo and the new federal Liberal government will reopen the Maritime Rescue Sub-centre in St. John’s.

The Nunavut MP signed the mandate given to him by new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a letter nine days after he was sworn in as the minister of Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The sub-centre was closed in 2012 despite numerous protests from fishermen’s groups, the FFAW and the Newfoundland and Labrador government.

The CBC report did not contain a timeframe for the centre’s reopening.
