NB Government Will Not Revisit Decision To Shut Down Gagetown Ferry

Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser says the provincial government will not be re-visiting their decision to shut down the Gagetown ferry.

Fraser calls it a "tough decision that was made through the Strategic Program Review".

He says "it will cost a significant amount of money to replace that vessel, over five million dollars".

Fraser adds the Gagetown Ferry had very low ridership numbers.

A Potluck Dinner was held at the Legion in Gagetown last month that raised almost 4 thousand dollars to help save the ferry.
