Newfoundland and Labrador’s fisheries minister, Clyde Jackman, is vowing to keep up the fight to save the coast guard’s Maritime Rescue Sub-centre in St. John’s. As part of the federal government’s effort to save more than $50 million, search and rescue co-ordination services in St. John’s are being moved to existing Joint Rescue Co-ordination Centres in Halifax and Trenton, Ontario. “These are life safety issues. The people who work in these offices know our coastline. They know what boats are out in the areas. And they know the intimate details of what occurs off our shores,” said Jackman.He is urging the public to take up the fight to reverse the decision.
