Dexter: Confident Michelin Announcement Will Happen

Premier Darrell Dexter says he's not worried over Michelin's decision to postpone plans for an announcement tomorrow at the company's plant in Waterville. The company didn't give any reasons in a news release for the decision to postpone its announcement, and a new date has not been set. Dexter says there's no reason to believe the announcement won't go forward at a later date.

The tire manufacturer has been looking at expanding its operations in the Annapolis Valley community. In May, Dexter announced funding for a study that would look at relocating the Waterville Municipal Airport to allow for expansion at Michelin.
