Question 08

Olive Crane gives notice that she will ask the Minister responsible for Fisheries the following questions:

Date Submitted : November 14, 2014

On June 18, 2012, the Fisheries Minister participated with funding in the West Prince Seawall project, and I quote: " The Government of Prince Edward Island is pleased to partner with the Federal Government and the West Point Development Corporation to stabilize the shoreline adjacent to the lighthouse that was decimated during the storm surge of December 2010," said Minister MacKinley. "This investment will secure the future of this unique lighthouse so that it will continue to support economic activity and jobs in the area for years to come."

Did this project to protect the seawall by the West Point Lighthouse Inn get completed? The work was to be completed in 2012, does the intervention continue to work? With PEl being a coastal province with much coastal erosion, does the Minister anticipate that other communities across PEl might want to apply for funding to help with project to work on coastal erosion in their own areas? Does the Minster have programs or services still available to other community groups that want to apply for funding?


Date answered : December 04, 2014
During the storm surge of December, 2010 a portion of the sand dune system adjacent to the West Point Lighthouse was destroyed. The project to construct a new seawall was completed and the structure stabilized the sand dune. The intervention continues to work.

The Department does not have programs to support projects related to coastal erosion. The project at West Point was supported as a significant investment was made by the province and federal government to develop the historic lighthouse as a tourist destination and the extreme weather event destroyed the dune that was protecting the lighthouse from the sea.
