Somebody dropped the ball on George's Island. Here is what I received by e-mail from Parks Canada........

"Dear Mr. Mackay,
Thank you for your email and for your interest in Georges Island National Historic Site of Canada. Unfortunately, there has been a misunderstandingabout the anticipated timeline for opening the island to the public. Over the coming year, Parks Canada will be undertaking a project to construct a wharf and install water, sewer and electrical services on the island. This will be followed in subsequent years by the development of visitor facilities, products and services to support visitation to the island. Parks Canada is presently consulting with the public, stakeholders and partners regarding these aspects of the project to ensure what is developed meets the needs of the local community as well as those of visitors to Halifax. It is hoped that Georges Island will open to the public within three to five years. If you have additional questions or comments regarding the development of Georges Island, please do not hesitate to contact us."
