The Federal and Provincial governments have already spent over $10 million on this poorly thought out project.(and I presume they are still spending) They then cut funding from volunteer agencies all over the province under the guise of cost-savings. The sad part is that when she runs into cash flow problems, both orders of government will spend again. Zita, you should have saved your money, and ours as well.

Ms. Cobb's "endeavour" on Fogo Island is a completely nonsensical whim. It will go bankrupt, and would have done so on its own merits....too short a season, too few potential clients, a location that will always be much more of a limitation than an attraction. But Ms. Cobb has her face-saving excuse ready....the unreliable ferries will be blamed for the hotel's inevitable demise, and surely it will have played a role. But no one can claim ignorance of that critical, bottleneck issue, and Ms. Cobb went ahead with her "dream" (and a good dollop of our money, BTW!) anyway. Sorry, Zita....like all ex-Newfoundlanders, your memory of how this place works is (fatally) distorted.
