Push to Restore Nova Scotia-Maine Ferry Service
July 19, 2012
Boston Herald: An English retiree’s love for his son has prompted a petition to resurrect ferry service between New England and Nova Scotia.
Patrick McDonald said the end of service from Maine in 2009 shook the economy of the Yarmouth area, where his transplanted son Duncan lives, reverberating through the province’s tourism and real estate industries.
“It’s been catastrophic,” he said. “There were thousands who used to go on the ferry, stop by Yarmouth for 2 nights and take off.”
