Clown Barge and Rotors


The manufacturer of two huge turbine rotors that sank in Saint John harbour on their way to NB Power's Point Lepreau nuclear generating station in 2008 is suing J.D. Irving Ltd. and three other companies for more than $160 million in damages.

Irving owns New Brunswick, so Siemens had to use them. I'm glad to see that corporate senility is finally taking Irving-co. Unfortunately, they will probably take all of NB with them!

Anyway, this is a fascinating story!

All I can say is ...
Good! Sue them, and expose their incompetence, and the environment which engenders it.

Canada is becoming as introverted and parochial as China. Minus that country's actual relevance in the world.
