This third helicopter increases the number of serviceable aircraft to the area and is one more chopper ready and able to support search and rescue missions. After Burton Winter’s Death on the ice, the public was informed that both helicopters in Happy Valley Goose Bay were down due to mechanical problems. Word of a third helicopter in Labrador is great news for MHA Randy Edmunds. He’s advocated for better search and rescue services in Labrador since Burton Winter’s death. We also hear from MP Peter Penashue and John Gaudi looks back at the movement that formed as a result of Burton Winters death.
