Ferrity

A bit of unintended visual humour Tuesday courtesy VOCM's webmistress:


The story is about the intra-provincial ferry fleet of government-owned vessels.

The picture shows the MV Apollo, owned by Labrador Marine Inc., operated under contract to the provincial government on the Strait of Belle Isle run between St. Barbe and Blanc Sablon.

While that self-same provincial government toots its own horn, yet again, about the latest milestone in the 328-year process to replace 163-year-old ships, it has asked the federal government for autonomoney to subsidize the construction of new ships — plural — to replace the bright blue hull pictured in the VOCM news story.

Wallace? Wallace Mclean? This is you, yes? The terse, sarcastic tone of this heavily politicized blog would indicate so. How exciting. Are you well? I hope you're well. It's been too long...
