Liberal member Zach Churchill says the decision flies in the face of those trying to re-establish ferry service between Yarmouth and Maine.
The Nova Scotia and New Brunswick governments announced Wednesday they will provide up to $6 million in funding over the next three years for the ferry service between Digby, N.S., and Saint John, N.B.
Nova Scotia Premier Darrell Dexter has said the $200 million fishing industry in southwestern Nova Scotia relies on the ferry to help deliver their catch to markets in Canada and the United States.
A campaign to have the Yarmouth-Maine service re-established is underway but organizers say it will require government funding for the first couple of years.
