New Leadership To Oversee Bluenose II Project

Premier Stephen McNeil has made a bold move in an effort to get some control of the Bluenose II project. David Darrow, deputy minister to the premier and clerk of the Executive Council, will assume oversight of the Bluenose II restoration project. Darrow has a background in engineering, large-scale project management, and with the Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal. McNeil says his government has already taken steps to look into the handling of the project by asking the auditor general to conduct a full review of the project. He says Nova Scotians want answers about what's taken place on the project. This mornings delay in pre-sea trials - is just the latest in a series of setbacks for Bluenose II.
