Marco Mendicino, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Infrastructure and Communities and Sonterra Ross, Chief Operating Officer of the Greater Victoria Harbour Authority announced this week more than $6.8 million in joint funding for a dolphin extension project in Victoria. The project involves extending the dolphin structure at Ogden Point port in Victoria by more than 55 metres and adding two breasting dolphins on each side of the main pier structure to accommodate larger vessels. The new structure will be able to dock quantum-sized cruise ships that are increasingly being used by cruise lines, allowing this popular hub on Vancouver Island to accommodate more passengers while supporting tourism and economic growth for the region as a whole.
