HALIFAX - A group trying to save the CAT high-speed ferry service between Nova Scotia and Maine plans to rally in Halifax on Thursday.
Members include tourism stakeholders, business owners and employees.
They intend to gather outside of the building that houses the office of the premier and cabinet meeting room.
They want to speak with government officials and a commitment that efforts will be made to secure a ferry link with New England in 2011 and beyond.
Bay Ferries Ltd. announced in early December that it was dropping the service because it could not afford to operate without government help.
The Nova Scotia government says it can no longer afford to provide subsidies.
