Becoming an Island...Yarmouth, Nova Scotia

This summer, for the first time in more than 150 years, there will be no ferry service between South West Nova Scotia, and the coast of Maine.

In December the Nova Scotia government pulled a subsidy for the company that runs the high-speed CAT between Yarmouth and Bar Harbour.

Without that money, Bay Ferries says it can't offer the service anymore. The blow for the town, and surrounding area will be devastating, and residents say the impact will be felt across the region.
