So I’ve been reading a lot about how the ferry is tapped out now because they’ve used the last of the $21 million in what the Nova Scotia government had planned to give them in support of the run from Portland, Maine to Yarmouth. But wait a minute ! the $21 million was to be spread out for 7 years and 2 months into service, they’ve already finished using the money ? Now , no matter which way you look at it, it doesn’t look right.
I don’t know how Nova Star used the money but as a taxpayer myself, I just don’t feel right at all. If the government was giving this money to something that isn’t going to work at all, wouldn’t it be wiser to use it for something else more fruitful. So was Dexter correct all along about the ferry? very confusing and I for one wants the ferry to work without costing our taxpayer so much money.
If Nova Star or the Economic Development minster knew that they would need more money and years to make it work, why wasn’t this out in the open in the first place? I totally, CONFUSED! and I’m pretty sure a lot of people ain’t too happy about it. And for myself, I’m a lot confused more than anything.
