The cleanup of Sydney's industrial waste area has been a long time coming, but now federal and provincial governments have agreed to put forth $400 million towards this project.

After, some of us had the opportunity in January to review the plans for the cleanup with Parker Donham and Frank Potter of the Sydney Tar Ponds Agency, the members of the Cape Breton District Labour Council at their February meeting decided to support a comprehensive study for the environmental assessment so we can move along with the cleanup as soon as possible.

Let's work together to improve the lives of everyone on Cape Breton Island and put our people to work on the cleanup.

President, Cape Breton District Labour Council
