Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Kathy Dunderdale had little success when speaking directly with Prime Minister Stephen Harper yesterday, and said she is in “serious disagreement” with him and “extremely frustrated” over his refusal to reverse a decision to close the Maritime Rescue Centre in S. John’s. Even after Dunderdale offered to cost-share the continued operation of the unit, the Prime Minister declined saying that reversing the decision would put him in difficult position regarding other cuts the federal government is making. Dunderdale said despite their conversation the fight to save the centre on the southside of St. John’s harbour will continue. Dunderdale said all members of her caucus will be at a rally planned for Saturday in St. John’s on Harbour Drive at 11:30 a.m., but she will be away at a family function
