St. John's search and rescue centre to reopen by 2018

CBC News | November 07, 2016

The St. John's Maritime Rescue Sub-Centre will reopen within 18 months.

Fisheries Minister Dominic LeBlanc said Monday night that the federal government would restore the closed centre by 2018. The Coast Guard will also construct two new lifeboat stations in the province, and two new radars in Atlantic Canada.

"This is a promise our government made to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, and we are honouring that commitment here this evening," LeBlanc said.
