Nova Scotia could help pay to buy ferry for service to Maine: minister
The Nova Scotia government hasn’t ruled out pitching in money to help pay for a ferry that will be used to revive a service linking Yarmouth with Maine.
Transport Minister Geoff MacLellan also says there is no deadline for Bay Ferries to acquire a ship, though he would like to see service start June 1.
MacLellan says he remains confident Bay Ferries will find a vessel in time.
Bay Ferries was named as the new operator last year after Nova Star Cruises failed to meet passenger targets, despite receiving nearly $40 million in provincial subsidies.
