Darlings Island Resident Decries Lack Of Shuttle Boat Service

Frustration from a man who has spent the last 20 years living in Darlings Island over a decision to not bring in a shuttle boat as the community is under threat of flooding. 

Ed Crossman tells CHSJ News there has always been a service to bring the residents to and from the mainland and he thought that was the case until receiving a notice the other day saying otherwise.

He says residents should have been given a week's notice and he would like to see a government official visit the island so residents can talk to him/her about the situation. Crossman says someone really dropped the ball on this one.

Darling's Island is currently under a voluntary evacuation.
