    The story as presented here is too shallow to see the detail required to comment. Removing the air ambulance is another example of the shift of services from many rural areas. This isn't the only province suffering from this malaise. Our entire region is facing significant cahlleneges trying to continue services as our populations quickly grow older and are not replaced. I have tried to follow this story when able, because I am so interested in NL and have spent a great deal of my life there. If there has not been a meeting of the two parties coomplaining and the two parties they seek to remove, there should be. If they believe there are hidden agendas involved, they should say so. Decisions such as the one you are facing are unfair and will have untold negative consequences. However, removing leaders who have amassed a great deal of knowledge and obviously care very much about the area is a poor next step. While you quibble, the real decision makers are moving ahead with other plans, some of which may be equally negative. i suggest the four people named in this article have a meeting to thrash out their views immediately, and then issue a statement. You must also remeber that Boyd rowe is an employee who speaks for his employer as directed by their wishes. In turn the rest of you are elected to represent the people who appointed or voted for you and should know better than to engage in this poorly considered communication. If you have done the things I suggested, then develop a sensible communications strategy and act. There are many capable media specialists in NL or elsewhere who can help. I wish all of you the best as you tackle the realities facing our region.
