Council Meets In-Camera On Port Marketing Agreement
Regional Council met in-camera this afternoon to discuss the agreement giving Sydney Harbour Investment Partners (SHIP) exclusive rights to market Sydney as a potential container terminal site.
The meeting was called as SHIP and other local businesspeople urge the provincial and federal governments to do more to fix the Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway.
They say a rail connection is an essential part of a case for a container terminal.
The agreement with SHIP was also at the centre of a recent decision by the province’s privacy commissioner, who says the municipality broke the law in the way it handled a freedom of information request for details on the agreement.
