The NDP’s Olivia Chow has learned that the federal government wants the province to take over its federal docks on Manitoulin and Tobermory. That’s what delayed work on the terminals where the Chi Cheemaun docks. The feds wouldn’t carry out the work saying it’s a provincial responsibility. As stated in earlier reports the repair work is less than $300,000. Meanwhile, federal riding MP Carol Hughes says the feds have no problem spending millions on partisan politics but won’t pay for the dock upgrades.
