Group Speaks Out Against Sale of Archibald Wharf
A group in North Sydney is speaking out against plans to sell Archibald Wharf to a marine services company. Members of the North Sydney Business Improvement Development Association say the Regional Municipality entered into talks with Canadian Maritime Engineering without consulting the public. Association chairperson Dan Bunbury says they’re not anti-development or anti-jobs. However, he adds there are many other locations along the North Sydney waterfront where the company could expand. The Association says the green space, performance area and playground at Archibald Wharf serve as a town square for local festivities and an attraction for tourists. Members say they’d like to sit down with the CBRM to discuss plans for the Wharf.
