Stop-work orders from city hall were posted at the chemical tank work site on the Cornwall waterfront.
CORNWALL, Ontario - City council is meeting tonight and is expected to sign a letter of intent that will officially kick start talks with the federal government about assuming ownership of harbour-front lands.
The city, Akwesasne and Transport Canada are expected to enter negotiations concerining divestiture of the property that also includes a controversial chemical tank project that has created a firestorm of criticism in Cornwall.
In order to officially begin negotiations city council must greenlight the talks, which is the basis for tonight's special council meeting.
The city must also sign a non-disclosure agreement as part of negotiations.
More to come.
