Town of Fortune pressuring government to accept OCI plan

Ocean Choice International is lobbying the government to accept its plan to reduce regulatory requirements on processing in order for it to provide nearly 400 additional jobs for the plant in Fortune (on land and offshore) and now the town is ratcheting up the pressure as well. “We wanted to press on the minister the importance of this proposal and of accepting it, perhaps with some conditions, but it’s important for the future of the plant in Fortune and indeed the whole town,” Mayor Charles Penwell told the CBC. “If this is rejected and OCI pulls out, they might not only pull out of Marystown but Fortune as well,” Penwell said.
