Bay of Fundy Ferry Service to End

Thursday, July 06, 2006
Bay Ferries Ltd. announced on June 30 that the Princess of Acadia will make its final three-hour trip between Digby and Saint John, N.B., on Oct. 31.High fuel prices and declining tourist and commercial traffic were among factors in the decision, the company said in a news release. Local government officials are working together to find a way to maintain the area’s ferry service. Many officials are expected to travel to Halifax for talks with cabinet ministers and, possibly, the premier, with the hope that the Bay Ferries decision can be reversed if there is some financial help from the federal government. At the legislature, Premier Rodney MacDonald said the government is playing an active role in finding a solution, although that won’t include an operating subsidy from taxpayers.
