India's High Commissioner To Canada Visits Saint John

Port Saint John and E.A. Farren Limited hosting the Indian High Commissioner on a tour of Saint John.

The event focusing on the potential for trade between the two countries.

Admiral Nirmal Verma tells CHSJ News he views Saint John as an energy hub.

Verma is a former naval officer and he can't imagine such depths available as our harbour has for ships to come in alongside or offshore.

He says if there is available crude oil it should be possible to ship it from Canada back to the west coast of India where most of the country's refineries are.

Verma tells us he spoke to Mayor Mel Norton about the potential for Saint John as a backdrop for a Bollywood film as the industry is looking for new locations.
