"He said the average tourist doesn’t want to visit a city like St. John’s. They’re looking for the outport and rural Newfoundland experience, which is what Ramea has to offer." To the average tourist, St. John's is rural. I think the tourism figures dispute the statement that tourists don't want to go to St. John's and would prefer to go to (random outport village). With an average of 8 passengers, I find it hard to believe that in peak season that the ferry would really carry more than 50 people. Can he give figures for how many times last year the ferry carried more than 50 people? And what were the number of people on the ferry when they were over that amount? I would rather see hard evidence than anecdotal statements about people not taking the ferry because they are afraid they won't get on it (when it averages having 90 empty seats of 99).
