The man who would be owner of the mothballed Marystown Shipyard is concerned that the deal to purchase it from Kiewit might fall through if Ches Crosbie wins the election.
Paul Antle of Marbase Marystown is in the process of acquiring the facility and is in Marystown today updating the town council, union and others.
Antle, representing the Liberals, lost to PC Leader Crosbie in the Windsor Lake byelection last year. He’s basing his comments from Crosbie during a debate leading up to that byelection.
He says Crosbie insinuated that there was underhandedness going on around the transaction.
Antle assures that nothing could be further from the truth as it’s a good project for the region with hundreds of jobs at stake and millions of dollars in investment.
