Ferry Loss Upsetting Residents: Councillor

The loss of the LaHave River Ferry has stretched into over a month. The ferry has been out of operation since it broke free from its cable during a wind and snowstorm on January 3. Since then, crews have been working to fix the vessel and get it back into service as quickly as possible. The councillor representing West LaHave, Martin Bell, says some residents are beginning to get tired of the extra drive.

Bell says he hopes the ferry will return to serve residents sooner rather than later. A spokesperson with the Department of Transportation is now saying it could be the end of this week before the ferry resumes operations.
