Ferry Schedule Should Be Adjusted: PC Leader Baillie

There are fears the daily arrival time in Yarmouth for the new ferry may hamper efforts to increase tourism and business along the South Shore. The province's PC Opposition Leader Jamie Baillie says it will be arriving too early, before businesses are open.

Baillie suggests a 9 or 10am arrival time might make a difference in people staying in the area to visit and shop. The Nova Star begins service on Thursday, arriving in Yarmouth from Portland, Maine daily at 8am with passengers and vehicles.
