That's how Metis Nation president Chris Montague described the linking of phase 3 to the other sections making up the 1,150 drive across Labrador. For the first time, it is now possible to actually drive all the way across Labrador's wilderness, previously unseen to virtually everyone. It means more convenience for residents for travel, transport, communications in person, and family interaction. For anyone it means a chance to see a wild and beautiful part of our province that is unknown, an opportunity for photos, hiking, discovering, appreciating and respecting. It will also mean more opportunities for the development of services along the way, thus, allowing for economic development. For vacationers, it opens up over 1100 km of possibilities for in-province vacation trips to a great and "new" land.
