    Welcome to the 21st Century, former residents of Grand Bruit!

    Of course, I could have said ''welcome to the 20th century'' and it would have applied equally.

    It's a fact of life that people will go where the services they need or are easily obtained. Years back, Joey gave many fish plant licenses to just about any settlement that wanted one. The consequences are now comming back to bite us.

    Isolated outports, especially islands, should be relocated to mainland NL where the services they require, such as medical, financal, etc., are a lot more accessable and readily available in case of an emergency.

    While I appreciate the fact that the older people wish to stay where they are, everybody has to face the realities of accessing these services, especially in fall and winter. If one gets to a hospital during the Golded Hour immediatly following an incident, chances of making a recovery are much better than after that hour has elapsed. These delays could, then be, directly attribuatale to deaths, if only the service was readily availabe.
