Plans including photographs of recent tests, right and above, have been uncovered this week for what is being called the Tantrama City SlingTide project, heralded in leaked draft press releases from both Ottawa and the provisional government of the pending Maritime Union located at Tantrama City as a "a cornerstone of economic development" for the new Maritime mega-city and the entire mega-province being created under Liberal Party of Canada direction as part of its effort to "rationalize the Canadian reality" as it enters leadership its third minority government in two years. Apparently working on the principle that the mightiest tides in the world can create shipping speeds unheard of in conventional docking and disembarking ports, a new harbour area in the Tantrama City Economic Zone, provisionally called Port Archibald, has been identified as the base for this new marine transport technology.
Presented with the leaked plans for the mega-project, and its estimated cost of 23 billion dollars, First Minister Designate of the Tantrama City Provisional Government, John McDonald MacKay Archibald, the Federal Liberal appointee, announced this Thursday: "We are planning to apply a lot of new technology, a lot of technology, yes, and a fair chunk of ACOA funding as well to make this dream of a new city for all peoples within the Maritime Union zone." When asked what economic purpose the SlingTide project might actually serve, FMD Archibald, after a moment's pause, stated that given access to the St. Lawrence Seaway has been restricted, it is expected that Port Archibald will return the new Maritime Union to its rightful place in world shipping lanes, providing access to Maritime goods throughout the northeastern of the United States and what he called "the Caribee" on a "for profit" basis, mentioning something about coal and potatoes as well as "a fair chunk of ACOA funding."

Word from Ottawa is that Opposition co-Leader Belinda Stronach is outraged at the transfer of so much of Ontario's funding for the proposed mega-province, mega-city and mega-projects, including the Tidnish-Minas Canal and Northumberland Tidal Power, at a time of national crisis given Alberta's default announced by Prime Minister Harper of that province from Calgary this month as well as the on-going negotiations with the national government of Quebec. Opposition co-Leader Peter MacKay has not issued a statement to this point.
