Canada's New Government Announces Float Repairs at Harbour Facility in Tobermory

TOBERMORY, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 28, 2007) - Larry Miller, Member of Parliament for Bruce--Grey--Owen Sound, announced today on behalf of the Honourable Loyola Hearn, Minister of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), that Canada's New Government is investing in required float repairs at the Tobermory (Little Tub) harbour facility.

"The Tobermory facility is a very popular tourist destination and receives heavy traffic during the boating season," said Mr. Miller. "Keeping this facility in a safe and fully operational state is a necessity."

The repair work is currently under way and consists of the replacement of a number of floating dock systems at the Little Tub harbour facility. The project is being implemented by the Municipality of Northern Bruce Peninsula, which manages the site on behalf of DFO's Small Craft Harbour's Program.

"With Bruce Peninsula National Park of Canada and The Fathom Five National Marine Park of Canada close by, these repairs are necessary for local tourism," Miller concluded.
