Poor choice for ferry name


None

Samuel Champlain

In regards to naming the new ferry for the Digby-Saint John service and the recent proposal by a politician that it be named after Samuel Champlain, it must be noted that Champlain was an Indian killer.

I don’t think the local Mi'kmaw natives of eastern Canada would be too pleased with that name.
