The Sir Robert Bond is making slow progress as it moves through ice about 22 miles from Corner Brook.

A spokesperson for CAI Nunatsiavut Marine said late Thursday afternoon that the Bond was stuck in ice and an icebreaker accompanying it was working to get the ferry moving again.

However, just before 5 p.m. an update on the CAI Nunatsiavut website,, said the ferry was moving again. The ferry had been scheduled to arrive in the city at 5 p.m. but the website update said “ETA Corner Brook is unknown at this time, due to the uncertainty of ice conditions ahead.”

The Bond is scheduled to leave the city at 7 a.m. on Friday.

    They should move the service to Port aux Basques and take it out of Corner Brook completely. It's the same old story for that harbour, every winter you can't get in or out because of the ice. At least Port aux Basques is an ice-free harbour and the boats can run all year round. Wonder how much this is costing to have an ice breaker escorting the boats in and out of the harbour 4 months of the year. Move it to PAB.
