Knight said the Indigenous group has asked the provincial government for years to tear down the dock but no actions were taken.
The Ministry of Transportation said that action will begin this spring, followed by the construction of a new dock which is expected to begin in the fall.
The Indigenous group said they have waited far too long for the Provincial Government to take down the rotting dock and that it has also become a safety hazard.
The dock is currently blocked off with fences and security but residents said that still doesn’t stop teenagers from finding ways to trespass.
