The is­sue of the Fogo Is­land ferry break­down is in the air again. Of course the ferry sys­tem here is in a mess again.

The is­sue of a cause­way has been in the minds of some peo­ple here and of course some of us be­lieve that a cause­way would be the ul­ti­mate so­lu­tion to the ferry prob­lems here.

Sure there is deep wa­ter in some places in the ferry run but I’s not ev­ery­where. There is a se­ries of small is­lands be­tween Man-o-War Cove and Farewell which could be con­nected by a road reach­ing over half­way across the ferry run, and so a cause­way is pos­si­ble. What is needed is the will to do it.

It would be very ben­e­fi­cial to Fogo Is­land in many ways. If a bridge can be placed be­tween New Brunswick and Prince Ed­ward Is­land, then surely a cause­way can be built reach­ing to Fogo Is­land. The fish­ing in­dus­try and the tourism in­dus­try here could be en­hanced greatly by it.
