The Port of Halifax held its annual public tour yesterday in partnership with Murphy’s, Ambassatours and Irving to provide boat tours to members of the public.
The tour aims to provide the public with additional information about the port, including the vital connection between the Port of Halifax and the larger community. People are brought up to date on the considerable investment and development that has taken place in recent years. For example, Richmond Terminals Pier 9C was refurbished and is now taking large/heavy-lift project cargo. The Irving Shipyard, which is now building the next generation of Canadian warships, is located directly beside Richmond Terminals. Visitors were very interested in the activities at each of these locations and how they complement each other.
