Starting with a very emotional letter from one of our local dock builders, the pressure is ratcheting up on FLNRO Minister Steve Thompson to settle the docks questions sooner rather than later.
Our understanding is that his department has presented a couple of scenarios to him that basically outlined the status quo; no semi-waterfront docks. The minister then sent them off to come up with something better, and at this point it's still in limbo.
The PRESS gang (www.2000PRESS.ca) is having a meeting with Minister Thompson on the 17th of May to discuss this situation and is taking along the letters they've received. We wish them luck.
