Abstract:  NATO Defence Ministers have scrapped plans to build a NATO Training Centre at Goose Bay, Labrador. The decision was hailed by Native groups and peace and environmental organizations. Federal Trade Minister John Crosbie reacted angrily, blaming the Innu for their opposition to the base. The Innu, said Crosbie, had been "extremely unhelpful, unproductive and unfeeling". "Goose Bay lost out because of the Innu," Crosbie said. Innu spokespeople were pleased, but noted that low-level flying would still continue in the area and might well intensify, even without the base.
