Atlantic Premiers collaborating

The Council of Atlantic Premiers continued their meetings yesterday and agreed to work together on a number of federal-provincial issues, from health care to shipbuilding to immigration. Much of the talk surrounded the transfer of federal revenues to the provinces – as the current agreement is set to expire in 2014 – but the group also called on the Prime Minister to honour his election commitment and provide a loan guarantee, or equivalent financial support, for phase 1 of the Lower Churchill development. The energy development is looked on by all of the Atlantic provinces as a regional project with regional benefits. More on the council and its activities can be found on its website.
