Hantsport residents fed up waiting for the province to fix aboiteau break
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.’”
