    I agree with the committee that met with the minister and government officials. I also agree with Fogo's position. I personally believe that government, ferry users and transportation officials should always be a part of the mix when decisions are made. We might all be surprised when everyone sits down, what can be accomplished. Cooperation and communication is much more productive than fighting and arguing.

    Here we have an island with little ability to support itself for the long term and one that relies on ferry service at the taxpayers expense. What right do these people have to live there just because their ancestors happened to come across it or because they built homes and communities? They are not as competitive as they need to be to justify their existence and are a burden on the more productive areas and people. As it is inefficient and has such a high level of unemployment, I say we should relocate its residents to a place where they are less expensive to service. I'm talking about Newfoundland by the way.

    By all means. Relocate the population of Newfoundland to Quebec. That should fix things for everyone. Then the oil companies can bring up the south Americans and Asians to run the rigs for a fraction of the operational costs creating higher revenue for a dead province. br br A perfect plan. Danny should be willing to sign on to that for sure.

    What Mayor Gosine is asking for is not to much. He is correct when he states To have a reliable, dependable ferry service is the backbone of our community. The residents need better service. Good to see the government met with the committee and seems open to discussion for improvements.
