Government Response to the Report of the Standing Senate Committee on Fisheries and Oceans entitled: Seeing the Light: Report on Staffed Lighthouses in Newfoundland and Labrador and British Columbia

The Honourable Fabian Manning
Chair, Standing Senate Committee on Fisheries and Oceans
Senate of Canada
Ottawa, Ontario

Dear Senator Manning,

I would like to thank the Standing Senate Committee on Fisheries and Oceans for its report Seeing the Light: Report on Staffed Lighthouses in Newfoundland and Labrador and British Columbia.

The Government thanks the Committee for its extensive work on this matter and appreciates its input.  The Government has no plans to de-staff Lighthouses and since this matter has been examined extensively, there is no need for further study on this matter.

In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Committee for its work on this report.

Yours sincerely,

 

Keith Ashfield
