North Coast petition to replace ferry
It’s no secret that people on the north coast of Labrador are fed up with the Northern Ranger. The vessel had numerous delays this summer, the price of freight has shot up and at one point a generator caught fire. Residents have been asking for the government to replace it, but that won’t be happening anytime soon. Now they’re getting ready to apply more serious pressure on the province — and it all begins with a petition making the rounds from community to community. Darlene Winters is from Hopedale. Labrador Morning producer Jay Legere spoke with her about it.
