Yes, the connection is severed. I come from New York State every summer to visit my sister in Argyle. I used to come via the ferry. Now I fly the little plane from Portland. But, not everyone can do this. Nova Scotia is now more remote than ever before - practically an island as far as the US is concerned. The ferry is needed by Yarmouth, Southwest Nova Scotia, and yes, by the whole province as everyone has suffered from its absence. Let the call go out! Bring the ferry back in 2013!

Bring back the ferry NOW , I have been spending my summers in Yarmouth and have watch busnesses go, close there doors, no tourism.. I agree with ark Guay, that lighthouse needs to be seen by all, the entire town needs to be seen. I just heard another popular place is closing after Fathers Day, The Austrian Inn,every Sunday our family ate there. So sad !!!!!!!!

Not only is the connection severed between this great progam, it's also beguining to errode the connection between people in general: Family, Friends, and Industry. Talk Talk Talk, that's about all you hear from those wanting to get re eleceted or re appointed. You want to save Yarmouth and Southern Nova Scotia? Start by agreeing to bring the Ferry back. While all of the "Decision" makers drag out the politically correct discourse, Yarmouth suffers. Geez, your Lighthouse at Cape Forchu was just named Canada's Best Public Space! Capitolize on this, and get the ferry back for 2013!
