Le gouvernement investit dans un centre multifonctionnel à Shippagan

SHIPPAGAN (CNB) – Le gouvernement provincial investit dans la création d'un centre multifonctionnel à Shippagan. Le ministre des Transports, Denis Landry, en a fait l'annonce.

« Ce centre multifonctionnel est un projet important pour la collectivité de Shippagan, a déclaré le ministre Landry. En investissant dans l'infrastructure communautaire, le gouvernement du Nouveau-Brunswick aide à renforcer les collectivités. »

M. Landry parlait au nom du ministre d'Entreprises Nouveau-Brunswick, Victor Boudreau, qui est également ministre responsable de la Société de développement régional.

« Cette annonce illustre bien la collaboration de deux ordres de gouvernement, pendant un certain nombre de mois, à un projet qui profitera aux Néo-Brunswickois », a affirmé M. Landry.

Le gouvernement provincial, par l'entremise de la Société de développement régional, investit 700 000 $ en deux phases. L'investissement de la phase I, d'une valeur de 290 000 $, provient du Fonds de développement économique pour le Nord; il servira à la planification et à la conception. L'investissement de la phase II, de 410 000 $, provient de l'Initiative d'infrastructures pour le nord du Nouveau-Brunswick et sera utilisé en vue des travaux de construction.

Le coût total du projet est de 2,4 millions de dollars. Le centre sera situé près du bord de l'eau, à côté de l'Université de Moncton, campus de Shippagan, et de l'Aquarium et Centre marin du Nouveau-Brunswick. Il permettra de répondre à la demande croissante en matière de conférences.

« La Ville de Shippagan est fière de la contribution provinciale dans le projet de la salle multifonctionnelle communautaire », a dit le maire de Shippagan, Jonathan Roch Noël. « Lorsque cette salle sera construite, le tout permettra à la municipalité d'être plus créative et d'être à l'avant-garde de son développement durable sur son territoire. »

Investir dans l'infrastructure constitue un objectif défini dans le Plan d'action pour l'autosuffisance du nord du Nouveau-Brunswick 2010-2013.

Travaux de réfection à l'aéroport de Bathurst : l'échéancier a été respecté

C'est le jeudi 23 septembre, en début d'après-midi, que la directrice générale de l'aéroport régional de Bathurst a reçu le feu vert des représentants de Transports Canada pour reprendre les activités. L'échéancier a donc été respecté, et l'aéroport a pu accueillir un premier vol commercial vers 22h20, le vendredi 24 septembre.

«Nous pourrons reprendre nos activités de deux vols par jour et des vols privés aussi, répond avec un grand sourire Jennifer Henry, directrice générale de l'Aéroport régional de Bathurst. Nous avons tout de même avisé les gens quelques semaines à l'avance et le transport aérien avait communiqué avec la majorité de ses clients pour les aviser des changements d'horaire. En tout et partout, ça s'est bien déroulé et le public a été bien informé. Nous avons aussi été aidés par les conditions météorologiques. Lorsqu'il a plu, nous en étions à l'étape de compactage, ce qui a aidé. Ensuite, il a fait beau pendant tout le processus d'asphaltage.»

Lorsque L'Étoile a rencontré Mme Henry, les représentants de Transports Canada quittaient les lieux, sans avoir détecté d'anomalies. «De ce qu'ils ont pu observer aujourd'hui, tout va selon leurs attentes», affirme Mme Henry.

Tant l'échéancier des constructions que le budget de 1,9 million $ ont été respectés. La contribution fédérale a été annoncée en août dernier, quelques semaines à peine avant le début des travaux. Sans cette reconstruction de piste, l'Aéroport de Bathurst faisait face à une fermeture indéfinie inévitable, en raison de la mauvaise condition de la piste. Les travaux ont été confiés à Saint-Isidore Asphalte, avec R.H. Frenette comme sous-traitant.

Maintenant, la Commission régionale de l'Aéroport régional de Bathurst peut se concentrer sur la suite des événements, soit l'agrandissement du terminal. Les travaux récents n'incluent pas l'agrandissement de la piste, qui est présentement à 5 000 pieds. Le projet d'agrandissement de 900 pieds cadre donc dans le plan d'expansion. À cela, s'ajoute le besoin de doubler la superficie du terminal. Le nombre de sièges dans la salle d'attente passera donc de 35 à 75.

«Maintenant, nous pouvons nous concentrer sur l'aspect agrandissement de l'aéroport, l'allongement de la piste et le terminal. Nous voulons en tout et partout doubler, par les deux extrémités, la superficie du terminal. Notre plus petit avion peut accommoder 37 passagers et le plus gros 50. Déjà là, il y a un manque de place uniquement pour les utilisateurs dans la salle d'attente. Il faut ensuite augmenter ce nombre pour les gens qui les accompagnent avant leur départ et ceux qui sont là en même temps pour les autres qui arrivent. Il n'y a pas beaucoup de place de libre dans le terminal à ce moment occupé», mentionne Mme Henry.

Ces nouveaux agrandissements profiteraient donc aux passagers d'abord, mais aussi aux employés de l'aéroport pour la sécurité, mais aussi pour les compagnies aériennes et les opérations de l'aérogare.

Record d'achalandage au Port de Belledune

Le Port de Belledune connaît une véritable histoire à succès qui fait l'envie de plusieurs. Son achalandage ne cesse d'augmenter et il est en voie de devenir le pivot économique de tout le Nord-Est.

Cette semaine record pour le Port de Belledune était un bon baromètre en raison des nombreux travaux qui sont en cours. «La semaine la plus achalandée jusque-là avait été de cinq navires pour la même période. Nous ne recevons habituellement pas autant de navires en même temps. De nombreux transports attendus au printemps ont été retardés à l'automne. Des navires attendus sont arrivés plus tard et à la dernière minute», explique Jenna Doucet, directrice du marketing pour le Port de Belledune.

Pour arriver à gérer une surcharge de travail aussi soudaine, le Port de Belledune a dû s'ajuster.

«Il a vraiment fallu coordonner le tout pour les navires qui étaient déchargés et libérer leur chargement du port. En même temps que nous avons accueilli ces neuf navires, nous avons dû poursuivre les constructions. Nous construisons un nouveau terminal et des cellules de confinement. On parle de travaux majeurs d'une valeur de 67 millions $. Nous prévoyons avoir terminé les travaux pour le premier avril 2011», note Mme Doucet.

Dans son dernier rapport financier, Rayburn Doucet, directeur général du Port, s'exprimait ainsi : «Alors que nous avons persévéré dans nos efforts pour maintenir et multiplier nos activités tout en cherchant de nouveaux clients, notre concentration sur les améliorations à apporter à l'infrastructure du Port s'est révélée fructueuse.»

Le Port de Belledune travaille présentement sur un autre projet, soit la construction d'un édifice pour la construction modulaire, au coût de 13,2 millions $, qui sera aussi terminée pour avril 2011. Tout cet argent, combiné à l'investissement de 67 millions $, est dans le processus d'être dépensé.

Il est peu probable qu'un rendement de neuf navires en sept jours se répète sous peu au Port de Belledune. Mais pour Jenna Doucet, cet achalandage est un signe encourageant. «C'est une tendance à la croissance qui pourrait se maintenir. Nous pouvons espérer avoir un plus grand nombre de navires et ce qui nous est arrivé du 11 au 18 septembre derniers prouve que nous sommes en mesure de répondre à une plus forte demande. Le Port de Belledune embauche présentement 11 personnes à temps plein et avec les employés des locataires du port, cela représente entre 150 et 200 personnes», confirme Mme Doucet.

Il y a quelques semaines, en début de campagne électorale, le premier ministre Shawn Graham s'est rendu au Port de Belledune pour annoncer une contribution provinciale pour la construction d'édifices pouvant accueillir la construction modulaire. Ce projet pourrait créer de 200 à 600 emplois dès son ouverture.


Les cargaisons

Les neuf navires provenaient de nombreux ports du Canada et d'ailleurs sur la planète, et ils transportaient des cargaisons variées. Les navires suivants transportaient des marchandises à l'importation : le MS Beluga Festival en provenance de Ferrol, en Espagne, a débarqué des composants d'éoliennes; le MS Sunrise Misen, en provenance de Cartagena, en Colombie, a débarqué du coke métallurgique; le MS CSL Laurentien, le MS Birchglen et le MS CSL Niagara, tous trois en provenance de Superior, au Wisconsin, ont débarqué du charbon; et le MS Beluga Navigation en provenance de Ferrol, en Espagne, a lui aussi débarqué des composants d'éoliennes.

Les exportations ont aussi été nombreuses au Port de Belledune. Les navires suivants transportaient des marchandises vers l'étranger : le chaland PML Ironmaster/remorqueur Reliance a accueilli une cargaison de pierre armée à Belledune; le MS Canadian Navigator est arrivé en provenance de Québec et a pris un chargement de gypse synthétique à Belledune; et le chaland Lambert Spirit/remorqueur Salvor a reçu dans sa cale, à Belledune, une cargaison de concentrés de zinc.

Nope, looks like you're it.....

Don't despair though, Smevo keeps the Cape Breton thread going all by himself too.

Just to help you out, here's a little something from the CBC website.

Company pitches N.B. chicken factory plan
Last Updated: Friday, January 21, 2011 | 11:33 AM AT CBC News

Sunneymel's proposed chicken slaughtering facility will process 450,000 birds a week. (CBC)
Sunnymel is holding public meetings in a northwestern New Brunswick village to discuss the environmental impact of a proposed $40 million chicken slaughtering facility.

Sunnymel, the partnership formed by Olymel and Groupe Westco, will release the environmental impact assessment it performed for the provincial government and take questions from the public.

The proposed facility will be located in the industrial park in the village of Clair and the public meetings are planned for Friday and Saturday.

Richard Vigneault, a communications official with Sunnymel, said the public meetings will allow people to see what impact the plant would have in the area.

The environmental assessment examined the impact on various issues, including wastewater treatment, truck traffic and air quality.

No government funding

Vigneault said if Sunnymel gets the go-ahead, the plant will be built without government funding and it will also mean close to 250 jobs for people in Clair and the areas surrounding the village.

Vigneault said Clair is the perfect location for the facility.

"Because it's in the region near the farms where the poultry comes from and the fact that the village of Clair, with its industrial zone, was the best with water facility, lots of manpower too, where we can find people for work," he said.

The proposed facility would process 450,000 birds per week.

The proposal comes after a long-standing feud in the region's chicken processing industry.

Groupe Westco had announced it was joining forces with Quebec-based Olymel to build a new slaughterhouse in northern New Brunswick. In December 2007, Westco said that it wanted to start moving some chickens to a Quebec-based processing plant, while building a new facility in Clair.

That announcement caused the New Brunswick government to bring in a law giving the Department of Agriculture the power to decide where New Brunswick-grown chickens were processed.

I'm in Edmundston, with work and everything I have not had time to get some pictures of the constructions but I can give an update. Dollorama near the Walmart is almost finished, Sally's Beauty is now between the Citi Financial and Reithmans in the Victoria Street Place they still have a place to rent in the building, they tried hard to get a M&M Meat Shop but it didn't work out, looks like the place is too big for that though, I would see a Bulk Barn instead. CCNB is going well, still alot of tarp covering the portion that goes to the UMCE but the campus is HUGE, Police Station is getting isolation done right now I pass by everyday and I see improvements all the time as for the Indoor Stadium they took down the dome this autumn and they filled up the place where it was, construction will start as soon as the snow melts. I get to work and it's dark outside and I get off of work and it's dark so it's hard to go take pictures.

Yeah about the m&m, its a huge investment to buy just the fridges and if things don't work out, you are definately not going to get your money back by selling the fridges. So you have to be serious about investing in the franchise. But i think it would do well


So they did finally take out the bulle, i remember walking in there when i was younger and seeing the huge cave in in one of the courses

Yeah, the place caved in because of the bomb threat we had at the CDJ when I was there in 1999 I think, it was right after Columbine. It was mostly filled up with wood chips when they put the Bulle there and if was the reason why it caved in the first place. In the end where were only 2 tennis areas that could be used. Not alot of people know that but when they took down the Bulle, they also cut all the tennis fields seperatly, some were supposed to be saved and donated, but someone stole a rubber tennis field.

I know someone who was actually interested in buying the franchise but just didn't want to run it and he didn't know anyone who would. It would have been a popular place because of the location (Boucher Office). Alot of the people who stay in that area (including me) don't have alot of time to prepare a meal so they could just stop by. Where the new Dollorama will be situated there was supposed to be an A&W there, I remember looking at the first plans that they had brought out and it was a fast food, drive thru small restaurant. There are no fast food areas in the fastest growing district in the city other than the McD in the WalMart, I find that pretty odd that no one splurged the money. It was also said that Plaza Corp have no more plans for growth in Edmundston cause they don't have any space left other than the renting space next to Reitmans.

Yeah the famous bulle, i remember the bomb threat, I was at dear old Cormier at the time. The bulle was also only temporary, it had past its expected life by a few years

Yeah I know the M&M would be at a great location, there are a minimum of 5 houses each year going up in that area. I remember seeing the first plan where the drive throug was. Plaza said thay the number of flat location in the city was Becoming hard to find, odly enough, there is quite a big field in front of my dads bowling alley..

Here in Bathurst, commercial construction has been next to inexistant last year, will do a photo tour of the place soon.

We should go out for beer next time i'm in town

Province helping company in Miramichi to expand

MIRAMICHI (CNB) – The provincial government is making an investment in Hostopia to help it expand its workforce at its customer interaction centre in Miramichi.

Economic Development Minister Paul Robichaud and Peter Kostandenou, chief operating officer, Hostopia, made the announcement.

"We are proud to support Hostopia as it continues to seek opportunities to increase employment in New Brunswick," Robichaud said. “Hostopia and its parent company, Deluxe Corp., offer a wide range of web-based marketing services to clients across North America, South America and Europe. These services are geared to helping businesses grow through new customer acquisition.”

The provincial government is investing a total of $891,000 through a $700,000 forgivable loan to create up to 75 jobs and $191,000 through the Regional Development Corporation for equipment purchase and leasehold improvements. Hostopia will employ close to 300 in Miramichi once it completes the workforce expansion during the next 18 to 24 months.

"It is private sector businesses such as Hostopia that create opportunities for New Brunswickers to work and generate wealth throughout the province," Robichaud said. "As a government, our role is to ensure New Brunswick provides a welcoming environment for foreign investment where businesses can establish, thrive and prosper."

Hostopia provides web services enabling businesses to establish and maintain an Internet presence that can be found by potential customers. The company provides these services in partnership with communication services providers, including telecommunication carriers, cable companies, Internet service providers, domain registrars and web-hosting service providers.

“Hostopia and Deluxe Corp. are dedicated to providing services that help small- and medium-sized businesses grow and thrive in their communities,” said Kostandenou. “It is exciting for us to be directly experiencing the growth that enables us to add jobs and positively impact the New Brunswick economy."
