GUYSBOROUGH, N.S. (CP) — A municipality in eastern Nova Scotia says it has finalized the sale and transfer of waterfront land, further clearing the way for the development of a deep-water container terminal on the Strait of Canso.

The Municipality of the District of Guysborough’s council passed a community benefits agreement negotiated with Melford International Terminal Inc. earlier this summer.

Deputy warden Vernon Pitts says the land transfer represents a milestone in the project.

The municipality says a new, multi-million container terminal will be built on the site.

It says the facility will be among the only terminals along North America’s east coast capable of handling the world’s biggest container vessels.

    get rid of the 2 American consultants. They will be lucky if there is enough work to keep these 3 going. The taxpayers have better places to put their money.

    Wow, we're going to have Halifax, Sydney, and Guysborough all with deep water ports. Guess they're using the golf course strategy... Can never have too many.
