Still no answers on Marine Atlantic funding; Minister assures NLers of continued 'frequency' of service
I posed the following question today (April 29th) during Question Period in the House of Commons.
Mr. Speaker, Marine Atlantic is a critical link between Newfoundland and mainland Canada.
But for weeks now there's been an outstanding question of whether its budget would be gutted — as the main estimates indicated.
The Minister said wait for the budget, but then there wasn't a word, not a whisper about Marine Atlantic in the 518 pages.
Now, Marine Atlantic is referring all questions to the Minister's office.
Mr. Speaker, will the Minister finally stand in her place and tell Newfoundlanders and Labradorians what's happening to our ferry service?
