This is very bad news for outfitters, staff, guides, pilots, and the anglers who populate their camps. I hope it gets sorted before the fishing season.
Technically, you can drive from Toronto to Goose Bay, but at ~2500km, much of it without any services at all, and across some pretty rough, unpaved "highway", the drive would be a tough 2-3 days each way, not factoring in the reasonable possibility of a break down. Formerly, I could catch a morning flight, and be having a beer in Goose Bay in 5 hours.Surely the government will have to do something here. You can't have entire parts of the country cut off from the rest? I know there's a road to Labrador but is that even practical?
Troy, Pascan still flies to Wabush , 7 Iles , Gaspe , Bonaventure and Mont Joli .They are based out of YHU just south of Montreal . VERY reliable and professional service .There are a couple of other companies ,but IMO Pascan is the best .Yeah, and sadly I, I don't think the Goose Bay stop (nor any of the others) is coming back this year. Even if cross provincial border travel is permitted this year, I can't fly anywhere near any of my planned destinations (Gaspe in June and Labrador in July) because of flight cancellations. Gaspe I can drive to (dreadfully long drive for me), but Labrador just isn't doable by car in any reasonable way from Toronto. PAL charges an arm and a leg, and with so many cuts, it'll even be hard to get to a city that PAL flies out of to get to Goose.
