Liberal MLA Calls Ferry Change Another Broken Promise

The Liberal MLA for Charlotte the Isles calls it another broken promise by the Alward government.

Rick Doucet tells CHSJ News the people of Deer Island were promised a 24-car ferry and he has learned they will continue with an 18-car vessel.

He says the intent was to provide a 24-car ferry like the Deer Island Princess so they would have two new ferries which he says would make a big difference for the Islanders.

Doucet maintains the people and the ferry were consulted and they wanted a 24-car ferry adding there isn't a lot of difference in price going from the 24 to 18 car ferry.
