Why stop with a waiting room at Corner Brook. Why can we have one in Bay'Largent for the Rencontre East Ferry. No place to get a snack or use the bathroom until the ferry arrives and then a rush for the one bathroom. People urinate over the wharf because they have no choice. Time for someone if they want tourism in that area to look at a waiting area for the Ferry, Get into the 21th. century.

Why stop with ferry service to Labrador ? Why not make Corner Brook the official terminal and destination for the gulf ferry instead of the outdated and very inconvenient Port Aux Basques ? The city has the infrastructure to handle cruise ships and it's sometimes 6 or 7 thousand souls on board and provide them with more options and better scenery than the current terminal. It would be a huge boon to the economy of the city and the west coast in general. As a citizen of this fair city, I would love to see this implemented here..Port Aux Basques has outlived it's usefulness and is behind the times. We need to advance into the 21st. century...

So to recap John's "thoughts": Don't ever 'rat out' anyone in Corner Brook for anything, and let's just get rid of Port aux Basques. John Hickey, Mensa Hall of Famer.

Don't trivialize this tremendous 'feat' in planning. An adequate waiting area is as critical as the ferry itself......it will no doubt be very well occupied for extended periods. One suggestion: don't build it out of flammable materials. It is Corner Brook, after all.

this will be the new marine atlantic ferry terminal when the mill folds.

Good idea. we should make this so good that people will not feel forced to use it, but will really want to use the ferry service to and from Corner Brook.

An indoor waiting area and a privy? Welcome to the nineteenth century! After a visit to the Toronto Island Airport with complementary snacks, beverages, Wi-fi, etc. (not to mention a very pleasant screening officer and staff?!) I was impressed what can actually be done to make travelling a civilised experience. Did I mention the pleasant security officer?
