Zip line company in eastern Newfoundland attracts controversy

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - The Newfoundland government has handed a local company 100-thousand dollars to develop a zip-line ride for tourists.

North Atlantic Zip Lines is based in Petty Harbour, which is south of St. John's.

However, local resident Dawn Denief says the zip line cuts across her property — and she wants the ride shut down.

Denief says her privacy has been invaded.
