  • Harvesters Block Traffic Over Delays on Placentia Lift Bridge

    Frustrated fish harvesters have blocked traffic on the Placentia Lift bridge at this hour.

    Last week tensions were high after delays repairing the bridge blocked harvesters from leaving the harbour at a prime fishing period.

    Harvester Kenneth Viscount said it seems like the bridge works fine during slack time such as July and August, but in busy times, such as the height of crab season, it breaks down.

    Today harvesters on the bridge say they are going to block traffic for four hours, to make up for their delays in favor of traffic.

    RCMP are on the scene now speaking with the protesters. VOCM is tracking this story and will have more details as they become available.
