Brison seems ready to act

Last week I had the opportunity to attend a meet-and-greet session for Scott Brison, the federal public works and government services minister, who talked on the tar ponds.

As I listened it was quite apparent that Mr. Brison was in complete control, showing his excellent communication skills and business acumen. I firmly believe that when his department has the final blueprint for the cleanup, this minister will take action.

He also notes that while environmental assessment is in process, major elements such as stream diversion can proceed.

When this project is finished the concerned people of Cape Breton will be able to export this blueprint all over the world.
