The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

The num­bers are out and the to­tal pop­u­la­tion of in­cor­po­rated com­mu­ni­ties in the Trin­ity Con­cep­tion re­gion has edged up slightly. That’s the broad view. But look a lit­tle deeper and there are some in­ter­est­ing trends de­vel­op­ing in the re­gion, with Clarke’s Beach, Bay Roberts and Spa­niard’s Bay form­ing what ap­pears to be a growth cen­tre. There’s also some in­ter­est­ing re­sults in White­way that will blow you mind. But sev­eral com­mu­ni­ties ex­pe­ri­enced a sharp drop in num­bers in re­cent years, in­clud­ing the noted fish­ing hub, Bay de Verde.
