Has Little Advertising Harmed Ferry's Success In Year-One?

A veteran tourism operator in Lunenburg is worried about a lack of advertising, promoting the return of ferry service between Yarmouth and Maine. In business for nearly 20 years, Basil Oickle operates "Trot In Time" horse and buggy rides in Old Town Lunenburg. He says despite the provincial government trumpetting the return of the ferry, there's been little spent on advertising, here and in New England.

Oickle says its going to take some time for word to spread. He believes eventually though South Shore busineses and many others across the province will see renewed growth resulting from the return of the ferry service.
