Nineteen million dollars have been allocated by the federal government to clean up and repair more than 40 harbours in the province that were damaged as a result of Hurricane Igor and a December storm. Senator Fabian Manning, while visiting Petty Harbour late last week, said, “Safe, efficient harbours are essential for fishers and benefit fishing communities across the province. By funding harbour cleanup and repair projects, our government is investing in the future of Newfoundland and Labrador.” The federal government is working to ensure fishing harbours required for the spring 2011 fisheries will be repaired to allow safe access for commercial fishers. Nationally, the federal government is investing $71.6 million to clean up and repair harbours, and help communities recover from several devastating storms that occurred across the country in 2010.
