YARMOUTH, N.S. - A Nova Scotia community is rallying to save the local ferry service and hundreds of jobs by producing a music video.
About 100 people gathered on the Yarmouth waterfront today to record a tune penned by local songwriter Gary Kent.
Calling themselves the Ferry Revival Band they are hoping the song 'Save Our Boat' will bring attention to the loss of the CAT high-speed ferry to New England.
Bay Ferries announced in December that it was going to end the service because the province was no longer willing to provide subsidies.
The community is now appealing to the federal government to step in.

Organizations: Bay Ferries

Geographic location: YARMOUTH, Nova Scotia, New England

    $6,000,000 million dollars a year to keep a ferry to the states afloat? 6 million tax dollars and likely more as the years go on?

    Remember the Steel plant and people howled and cried about that when the flow of tax dollars ended and it couldn't stay afloat on its own?

    Goodbye Ferry and maybe put the tax dollars to better more sustainable use.

    Hummmm $6 million a year for an under 10K population. Sounds like another Sysco in CB to me. Good money after bad! Unfortunately this looks like another dying town in NS! Maybe the NS legislature will seal their doom by installing a toll road!
