“We’re hearing different stories: Canadian Supply Base Company (CSBC) wants it, Nalcor doesn’t want to give it, the government’s involved, so we wanted to sit down and listen to what they had to say.
“It was a good meeting with Minister Coady, I think we saw the side of government and Nalcor that we needed to see. But it left me with some questions that still need to be answered.”
And the big question that weighs on Snook’s mind most is what happens next for Newfoundland and Labrador? Listing off projects, such as Muskrat Falls and Husky Energy’s West White Rose project, that are expected to wrap up in the next couple of years, Snook wonders where Newfoundlanders will turn to work next.
“After that, all we see is Newfoundlanders getting on planes and heading west again,” he predicted.
Nalcor, in a response to The Packet’s inquires on behalf of themselves and The Department of Natural Resources, stated that they, along with the department, are still assessing both proposals in an effort to determine the best option(s), short and long term, for the Bull Arm site.
No date for that decision has been specified.
