Another ferry service linking Quebec's North Shore and the Lower Saint-Lawrence is in peril. For over a century, La Compagnie de Navigation des Basques has operated and owned the ferry connecting Trois-Pistoles to Les Escoumins. But that might all be coming to an end due to a lack of funding from the provincial government. Breakaway guest host Allison Van Rassel speaks with the ships captain Jean-Philippe Rioux.
