Coast Guard ships awarded to Seaspan by the Feds

3.3 Billion dollars and 10 more ships to be built in North Vancouver.

Premier Clark says this will mean 'great jobs for B.C."

Walter Gerlach, with the International Association of Machinists Lodge 692, said Monday’s announcement was a great one. However, he said the key will be bringing the vessels in on time and on budget. “The machine’s going to have to hit on every cylinder every time and hope we don’t run into any problems,” he said in an interview

Up to ten more ships.

It's a political promise - Believe it when it happens.

(I do think that building the shipbuilding industry back up is a good thing)

Are you serious? An absurd comment. You can believe it now.
