The question remains....when will Long Wharf be de-commissioned?

The work is necessary after Irving Oil's plan to build it's headquarters on the site was scrapped.

Captain Al Soppitt with the Saint John Port Authority tells CHSJ News, the best idea is to keep the pilings in the ground.
Soppitt adds there is no real urgency to decommision the site because the first Cruise ship at Long Wharf is not scheduled to dock until September.

Leslie MacLeod with Irving Oil tells CHSJ News, the Port Authority has asked them not to decommission the site at this time but they will work with them to meet their requirements and schedule.
