Reply from HNL re: TLH Letter

I was pleased to receive a response from Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador (HNL) concerning my letter about the importance of speeding up the completion of the Trans Labrador Highway. From the letter it sounds like HNL has been expressing the same message for years. The reply sounds encouraging. Here it is:

Thank you for your email concerning the need for a speedy completion of the Trans Labrador Highway.

As you mentioned, the completion of the Trans Labrador Highway will open the region up to many more economic development opportunities, including those in tourism. HNL has worked hard for many years to highlight to government the need for improved transportation infrastructure in Labrador in order to grow the tourism industry and take confort that residents of our province, like you, believe the same thing.

Thanks again for your email and HNL will continue to advocate for improved transportation infrastructure in Labrador.

Sincerely,
Nancy Healey
Executive Director

I wonder why HNL doesn't go public on this issue like it does, just about every other week, on the Gulf Ferry?

Or why HNL doesn't hold the provincial government to the same standard it expects of the federal?

I see nothing in this limpid resposne to be encouraged by.

I can only speculate like anyone on why, but they should be going public about it. People generally react more if an issue is publicized.
