Conservative Leader Shows Support for Mariners Centre Expansion Project!
September 1, 2021
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Halifax, NS - Today, the Hon. Erin O’Toole, Leader of Canada’s Conservatives, announced that a Conservative government will commit to the completion of the Mariners Centre expansion project in Yarmouth and the Sydney Harbour West Wastewater Collection and Treatment Project.
“These communities in Nova Scotia have been waiting far too long for the necessary investments to meet local needs,” O’Toole said. “That’s why with Canada’s Recovery Plan, a Conservative government will be a true federal funding partner for the new Mariners Centre and wastewater upgrades in Sydney to help create jobs and serve the needs of these communities.”
Once built, the new Mariners Centre in Yarmouth will offer aquatic and recreational facilities with programming for youth and seniors. The Sydney Harbour West Wastewater Collection and Treatment Project will serve 7,000 residents in Westmount, Coxheath, and Sydney River, and create approximately 270,000 hours of employment in the community.
“Canada’s Conservatives recognize the importance of these projects to families, seniors, and young people in Nova Scotia. These projects are pivotal to rebuilding the economy and making life better for residents,” said O’Toole. “Only Canada’s Conservatives have a plan to get infrastructure built to fuel our recovery.”
