For Jim, Nunatsiavut is the self government area of Inuit covering five communities from Rigolet to Nain. As to the concern expressed by out MHA, almost every body in the towns mentioned are very concerned that supplies may not arrive. The mv Astron, while doing a reasonable job in fine weather has its work cut out under winter conditions of the Labrador sea. The past week has shown that. The bigger issue is: why has the marine freight and passenger service been allowed to deteriorate to the level it has over these past 5 years. I have lived in Nain for over 30 years and can honestly say this is the worst year for both I have ever seen. This matter needs airing in public forums and taking politicians to task for their head in the sand attitude towards the coast of Labrador.
