Bay Ferries Ltd. released its fees for their high-speed Nova Scotia-to-Maine ferry service. Nova Scotia taxpayers were expected to support the service for $32.7 million over two years to refloat the previous ferry service, including a ten year agreement to cover any cash deficiencies the company might incur — if Bay Ferries lost money, those losses were to be reimbursed by taxpayers. A previous operator, Nova Star Cruises, failed to meet passenger targets and used up $39.5 million in provincial subsidies during its two-year service (as reported by the CBC). Bay Ferries began service on June 15.
