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 it’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.
