Back in the spring, we had a dramatic conversation with the mayor of Percé, who, after months of petitioning the federal government for money for repairs to the town's wharf, had just discovered a barrier had been erected at the wharf's entry.
The wharf was in bad shape, and Fisheries & Oceans had decided to ban access for security reasons. The town's mayor Bruno Cloutier was frustrated with the situation, and said he would go knock down the barrier himself with a backhoe.
There's been a recent development in this story. Mayor Cloutier dropped by our studios the mayor himself, who was town for a meeting of Quebec municipalities.

Marika Wheeler is back for part 2 of a look at the state of wharves in the Gaspé.
She brings us to Carleton-sur-Mer where like many communities, the wharf is not only important to the economy but is also a gathering place for locals and tourists.
