According to the article above, now Council can proceed with courting the Federal and Provincial Governments for funding. In 2004, the Province said they would fund 2/3 of the project.

Once funding is found and¬†approved, Council would be required to approve the plan once more prior to being final. The question is: Will the Federal Gov’t chip in the last 1/3 or will the Region be on the hook?
