The Burin Peninsula Joint Council expressed concern in a news release that the government may look outside the province for the construction of new vessels for the provincial ferry fleet.

The council says despite meetings with Kiewit Offshore Services and MHA Paul Davis, there appears to be a communication gap about the issue.

The council hopes to meet with government representatives as soon as possible, as “time is running out for the communities that require the ferry services and this region that requires the economic boost,” the news release states.
