Sydney Harbour Dredging Project Still Pending

Federal government officials are still considering a request for $19 million to help cover the cost of dredging Sydney harbour, according to the Nova Scotia government’s current point man on the proposed project. Jamie MacNeil, an aide to Premier Darrell Dexter, said Tuesday he has been speaking to senior staff members mainly in the office of National Revenue Minister Keith Ashfield, who is also the minister for ACOA and the Atlantic Gateway.
