    Corner Brook MHA Gerry Byrne says the School of Nursing in Corner Brook is permanent and there will be nothing that will put that in jeopardy. Byrne was referring to comments made by Mayor Jim Parsons on Bayfm Tuesday morning. The Mayor was concerned there were no budget announcements dealing with construction. Meanwhile, on Bayfm with Lenny Benoit this morning, Byrne ruled out any comments about the school closing. He says the Mayor should contact Grenfell Campus to see what their plans are for a $3 million dollar purchase of the former Curling Club building. Byrne says while MUN hasn’t moved on anything since buying the building 15 years ago, there was some talk about using the Annex at the Corner Brook Civic Centre. He says the Annex is a treasured recreational spot which will not be turned into classrooms. He says MUN needs to decide where they want the nursing school and there is money in the budget for planning.
