Tom Thomson Tour Boat Sinks

The tour boat Tom Thomson that arrived in Huntsville last fall has sunk at the docks near the Canada Summit Centre.

There doesn't seem to be any oil slick and pumps have been brought in, in an attempt to right the vessel.

The operator had expressed interest in running tours from the town docks through the summer, and the town issued a Request For Proposal to facilitate the activity.

Town staff indicate that, in a report to the Operations and Protective Services Committee that meets today, the operator of the tour boat did not respond to the RFP and will recommend that the town return the use of the town dock to passive use and public docking.
