Rally calls for action on Ferry terminals.

Regional | by Jon Meyer  

Protesters want Ottawa and Queens Park to move on fixing Tobermory and South Baymouth docks.

A rally for action is planned this morning (Fri) at the South Baymouth docks.

At 11AM this morning, when the Chi-Cheemaun would normally be docking, protesters will stand together to call on the Province and Federal government to have the fenders lowered at the ferry's births in South Baymouth and Tobermory.

The start of the sailing season for the Chi Cheemaun has been delayed at least a week, until May 10th, because of the docking problems.

Bruce Grey Owen Sound MP Larry Miller says it's a pissing match between the province and federal government but believes the problem could be solved by a simple 50-50 split on the cost to do the work.

The work needed to fix the problem is less than $300,000 dollars.

Meanwhile, as we told your Thursday morning, Miller said that 30 workers at the Owen Sound Transportation company are being laid-off.
Miller says it's a money saving move by the Province and the Owen Sound Transportation Company.

Still no word on if those layoffs are happening.
