Funny thing; the Province takes years to go after these people only tonot collect a cent. Even after the work is done all they will do i send out an invoice that will most likely be ignored. Compare that to the collection methods for the former School Tax; long after the tax was abolished the Gov't were still attaching wages and garnisheeing other forms of income. Why don't they just do the work add a 15% fee for he delays and then go directly to the Daley Brothers bank account and collect it.

Why do fish plant owners make lots of money and then the company goes bankrupt? The workers lose their jobs but the owners get rich. It's not right.

This illustrates how much of a drag the fishery is on the taxpayer's of this province. We continuosly hear the proponents of the fishery trotting out the millions of dollars in value the fishery is to the province. Well if we subtracted from that value, the money spent on EI, make work projects, subsidies to harvesters, subsidies to plant owners etc. etc. etc., we would soon find that value whittled down substantially.

What a joke.....the provincial govt. will not scare Terry Daly. This guy has been threatened that many times in the past he just smiles and walks away with the money.

Consulting company on site ??. More waste of taxpayers $$$$$$. With a good backhoe and a couple of tandem dump trucks the demolition should take 2 days. Why not give it to the locals for firewood or better still let the Fire Department use it for a training exercise a no-brainer.. Control burn

Fred from Brigus - have you ever been in a fish plant? The consulting company is there to assess environmental hazzards from Amonia and Chlorine and others that may get into the Harbour. Not to mention, a lot of these old plants used Abestos to wrap their pipes. The building is fallling into the Harbour, I don't think as a Council, I would want the legal liability of sending our volunteer Fire Dept into the Building.
