    And as a Paramedic for the Provincial Service... all I will get is an 0.82/hr raise for the last 5 years. And if they renew Bill 148, I have the same thing to look forward to for the next 5.

    My crystal ball sees more taxpayer money leaving our pockets for a money losing venture.

    Shameful. I understand the thought process of investing dollars for a return but this is unlikely to succeed as it is based on giving a shortcut to tourists and hoping they spend some money there while going north. They don't remember that they put the highway around the towns to help them drive past the services first.
    Middleton is a great little town but few will see it if headed to Halifax after getting off the boat.

    I was in Bar Harbor in May, building hadn’t even started, just some idle excavators sitting by a hole in the ground.

    If you look in the hole full of taxpayers money, you can see Stephen MacNeil with his dick stuck in s mousetrap that says US Border Patrol on it.

    Add to that what McNeil is allowing to happen to Nova Scotia forests. Look st the clear cutting we see, @fredgreen! All those places out South that used to be tress and now nothing.

    McNeil is a puppet of Industry and the Soggy Sneaker Crowd. He talks from both sides of his mouth.

    For those of you planning a trip to the Maritimes through NS, Bay Ferries has posted an update regarding service from Bar Harbour to Yarmouth for 2020.

    What a scam that is....

    200 bucks 1 way for a rider and bike. Car and family of 4 is almost 600. Fuck that.

    Looks like NS residents get 55 off for a motorcycle. I will still never take it.

    Fuckers will probably want 19 bucks for a Keiths draft.

    After running to Maine through Moncton several times I see it as an option for making it a loop ride. I like the south coast of Nova Scotia but it is out of the way when I am heading east or west.
    But that is 200 USD.

    'Tis certainly a more palatable price option.
