    An electrical problem on the Veteran this morning caused a backlog on the Fogo Island ferry this morning.

    The Department of Transportation indicates the regular schedule will resume later today, but one ferry user feels the delay could have been avoided.

    Liz told VOCM Open Line with Paddy Daly that their back up vessel, the Beaumont Hamel was available all summer is no longer available.

    She says an ambulance had to turn around and go back, while others simply abandoned the line up altogether.

    The Beaumont Hamel is currently serving the Little Bay Islands-Long Island-Pilley’s Island run while the Hazel McIsaac is in Lewisporte for preventative maintenance.
