Tony Huntjens - Charlotte/Campobello MLA Supports Year Round Ferry

Charlotte-Campobello MLA, Tony Huntjens supports the campaign to provide year-round ferry service to Campobello Island, allowing residents an alternative route to the outside world besides the international bridge to Lubec, Maine. "I think that's an absolute must," he said.

He does not begrudge Fisheries Minister Rick Doucet the new ferries coming to Grand Manan, White Head Island and Deer Island, the three inhabited islands in his riding of Charlotte-The Isles.

"I don't hold it against them for getting the ferries. That would be ludicrous, but I do feel that it is essential for Campobello to be treated equally," Huntjens said.
