Some Hantsport res­i­dents say they’re done wait­ing pa­tiently for the gov­ern­ment to fix the failed aboiteau, and they’re ready to take ac­tion.

Traci Curry, a res­i­dent of Hantsport, is the spokesper­son for the Aboiteau Ac­tion Com­mit­tee, a group of cit­i­zens con­cerned about the state of the Half­way River.

They’ve formed a Face­book group and are plan­ning to keep the is­sue front and cen­tre through an aware­ness cam­paign in the months ahead.

“For a year we felt that the right thing, the com­mon-sense ap­proach, would hap­pen,” Curry said. “That (the prov­ince) would fix the aboiteau, but a year later we all looked at each other and thought ‘wow, we’ve been very nice and kind so far, but maybe we need to be a lit­tle more vo­cal.’”
