Grand Manan Ambulance Service

The air ambulance service on Grand Manan used to involve a plane already on the island ready for take-off. That's changed and some say the new protocol is just not working and Islanders are at risk.

Alan Stephen is the president and CEO of Ambulance NB and Klaus Sonnenberg is the owner of Atlantic Charters and a pilot.
