Kyle Stewart talks to Maurice Smith about the potential economic impacts of the Lochaber Centre.
“The province is helping an Antigonish County rowing centre become the only facility east of Montreal capable of hosting national and international rowing events.
The Lochaber Community Development Association will use 400-thousand-dollars in provincial funding to help build the new facility on community land on Lochaber Lake.
Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Maurice Smith made the announcement, saying residents, visitors and athletes will benefit from a recreational and competitive rowing centre that has the potential to make a big impact on the local economy.
Lochaber Centre will also serve as a community hall, replacing the aging Sylvan Hall that has served the community for more than 90 years.
Construction is expected to begin this spring.”
