Ferry Funding/ Somebeachsomewhere/ Phone in: Newsmaker of the Year

Ferry Funding: Ottawa has decided to continue funding ferry service between Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and PEI. This extra $51 million will keep the ships running just three more years. For reaction, we reached three people who have been lobbying hard for ferries: Thom MacMillian is President of the Tourism Industry Association of PEI, Harold Theriault is MLA for Digby Annapolis in Nova Scotia, and Ross Jefferson is Executive Director of Saint John Destination Marketing.

Somebeachsomewhere: Somebeachsomewhere is a champion racehorse from Truro, Nova Scotia. He won 20 of 21 races, earned close to $3.5 million, and capped off his career by winning the 2008 Breeder's Crown. Somebeachsomewhere is now enjoying retirement at Hanover Shoe Farms in Pennsylvania. We check in with Bridgette Jablonski, a veterinarian who looks after "The Beach."
