VIDEO: Over $9 Million For The North End Y

Over 9 million dollars combined from the Feds and the Province to help build the new North end Y on Churchill Boulevard.

Tourism Minister Trevor Holder says its about having a world-class, first-class accessible YMCA facility in our community.

Holder says in 2013 it's very reasonable for a community of Saint John's size to expect that.

Juanita Black of Vibrant Communities Saint John tells CHSJ News it means a lot to see a big investment in the Old North End, Crescent Valley and Anglin Drive.

She says it opens the Y up for people to be able to walk there adding they don't need to be worried about transportation.

Y President & CEO Shilo Boucher says they expect to break ground next spring and the building should be open in the late fall of 2015.
