Partridge Island "A Great Opportunity For NB"

What will become of Partridge Island in the future is a question many are now working to answer. 

One of those people is Marijke Blok, who is the representative for the Irish community on the recently-formed Partridge Island committee. Blok says the work being done surrounding the island is not only good for the city but a great opportunity for New Brunswick.

The committee Blok sits on will be coming out with a report detailing a vision for the island in October, around the same time an engineering study on the breakwater is expected to be completed. Blok is in favour of fixing up the breakwater and also says she also likes the idea of an interpretation centre being on the island.
