CBRM In Discussions To Sell Archibald Wharf
The Cape Breton Regional Municipality is in discussions with a company that wants to buy Archibald Wharf in North Sydney. Mayor Cecil Clarke says Canadian Maritime Engineering wants to use the wharf under an expansion plan to carry out more marine services, supply and repair. Northside Councillor Clarence Prince says he understands the expansion could create between 50 and 100 good paying jobs. Mayor Clarke says he knows people are raising concerns about the green space around the Wharf. However, he adds the CBRM is looking at moving playground equipment to Munro Park and or Indian Beach if it’s affected by the expansion. Clarke says Canadian Maritime Engineering is working on a business plan that will be presented to council.
