Nunatsiavut 'cautiously optimistic' about ferry overhaul
Ferry companies need to have an understanding of the needs of coastal Labrador says government head
The head of the Nunatsiavut government said she is "cautiously optimistic" about the plan to overhaul the ferry service through Labrador.
"Whatever they're getting from the island will have to be trucked up to the port in Goose Bay and right now those aren't in any shape, or in any condition, to handle the amount of freight that would be coming up," Leo said.
Leo said that while reliable vessels are important, it's also critical for the bidding companies to have an understanding of the needs of coastal Labrador.
"It's the other services and infrastructure around marine services that we have to be cautious of,” said Leo.
